5.0 out of 5 stars Thirteen Great Stories 20 January 2014
By Acute Observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Return of Sherlock Holmes

In 1893 "The Final Problem" ended with the disappearance of Sherlock Holmes. The fans did not accept this ending. So in 1903 A. Conan Doyle brought him back for more adventures. These thirteen stories show clever and fiendish crimes that are prevented or solved. They warn about some danger in life. Each of these stories is preceded by "The Adventure of ...".

The Empty House. It begins with the mysterious death of Ronald Adair in a locked room. Watson gets a surprise from a visiting bibliophile. Sherlock explains his past actions. That night they capture a murderer, a highly regarded Army officer. [Danger from gambling with strangers.]
The Norwood Builder. John McFarlane visits while under suspicion of murder! A man is missing, a bloody walking-stick belonging to McFarlane was found along with charred ashes in a burned wood stack. Sherlock investigates the crime scene. Is a fingerprint proof of guilt? Will a surprise witness demolish the case against McFarlane? [Danger from a rich and friendly stranger.]
The Dancing Men. A man's wife was frightened by a letter that had little stick figures. He visits Sherlock, who studies this message. There is a shooting. Sherlock sends a coded message to an unknown man and solves the mystery. [Danger from marrying a total stranger.]

The Solitary Cyclist. Young and beautiful Miss Violet Smith visits to tell about being followed by a man on a bicycle. Watson goes there and sees the events. He and Sherlock arrive to save Violet from a ruined life. [Danger from fraud over an inheritance.]
The Priory School. The head of a preparatory school visits to tell about a missing student and wealthy heir. A teacher is also missing. Later this teacher is found dead, no footprints near the body! Sherlock figures who abducted the heir and where he is being held. The guilty will be punished. [Danger over hereditary wealth.]

Black Peter. A former sea captain who was a dangerous and violent man was found dead in his room. A man returns to the crime scene and is caught! Could he have done it? Sherlock investigates and locates the killer. [Danger from blackmailing a killer.]
Charles Augustus Milverton. A blackmailer visits Sherlock to negotiate a payment. Too high a price? Can illegal means be used to do justice? Sherlock and Watson burn those papers. This is one crime that will not be solved for the police. [Danger from old personal letters.]
The Six Napoleons. Inspector Lestrade tells Sherlock about someone who is smashing plaster busts of Napoleon the First. Is it a dangerous lunatic? Will catching this man solve another crime? [Danger from an innocent purchase.] Note the use of a false newspaper report.

The Three Students. A college Professor thinks someone may have seen a test paper. Which of the three students could have done it? Sherlock solves the mystery, no harm will be done. Is the likely suspect guilty? [Danger from a curious impulse.]
The Golden Pince-Nez. A young man was found stabbed to death, he was the secretary to Professor Coram (heart or Herz). Detective Hopkins visits for help. Sherlock discovers the truth about the murder and the politics of another country. [Danger from political conspiracies.]

The Missing Three-Quarter. The rugby player for Cambridge has disappeared before a big game. Can he be traced by a sent telegram? Can a better detective than Holmes follow a clever suspect? Yes. The mystery is solved but kept secret. [Danger from dependence on a rich relative.]
The Abbey Grange. Sherlock is summoned about the death of an aristocrat in a home robbery. His wife is bruised. Are there anomalies in the stories? Sherlock figures out what happened and finds the answer. Justice is done. [Danger from marrying a stranger.]
The Second Stain. Two high government officials visit Sherlock about a missing secret letter. Its publication could start a war! They read of the murder of a suspected spy. Sherlock visits this house and learns what happened. He is able to retrieve the missing letter so no one is harmed. [Danger from old personal letters used for blackmail.]
5.0 out of 5 stars A baker s dozen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s classic detective Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson his famous sidekick 2 March 2015
By C. M Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Return of Sherlock Holmes is the third of the Sherlock Holmes stories. There are thirteen of them in this stellar collection. Holmes was thought dead following his monumental battle with archenemy Professor Moriarity at the Reichenbach Falls in 1894. Dr. Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) had grown jaded with writing stories about Holmes. However, the public was clamoring for the return of Holmes and Watson so Doyle obliged by producing these thirteen stories. Their quality as is as high in the other collections. Among the classic tales are":
The Adventure of the Empty House-Holmes returns to 221 B Baker Street where he foils an assassination attempt against himself.
The Adventure of the Norwood Builder-An evil man attempts to flee justice.
The Adventure of the Dancing Men-A secret code involving a crook from Chicago.
The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist-A bright young lady is able to escape a forced marriage due to quick thinking by Holmes and herself.
The Adventure of the Priory School-A young nobleman is kidnapped.
The Adventure of Black Peter-A salty and cruel old seamen is murdered by a harpoon.
The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton-The most notorious blackmailer in London is murdered .
The Adventure of the Six Napoleons-The rare black Borgia jewel is found in a stolen bust of the Emperor Napoleon and murder occurs.
The Adventure of the Three Students-One of the three lads stole the test paper prior to the examination
The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez-The murder of Smith is investigated.
The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter-A Cambridge athlete is missing just prior to the big match against Oxford.
The Adventure of the Abbey Grange-A wealthy man is murdered by burglars or was it someone else?
The Adventure of the Second Stain-An important document is stolen which may affect European warfare.
This tie-in edition to the BBC television series has no footnotes and a short introduction.

3.0 out of 5 stars More like a blog than a book 19 March 2014
By Gwyndyr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do love the new Sherlock Holmes shows from the BBC and eagerly await new episodes however this book read much more like a blog than a book to me. It was worth the read but definitely not what I was expecting.
