More unforgettable Sherlock Holmes mysteries for fans of the hit movies.
Sherlock Holmes, the world's best-known and most-loved fictional detective, is more popular today than ever. This collection presents many of the most familiar cases Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson, ever solve, including "Silver Blaze," "The Greek Interpreter," and "The Musgrave Ritual." As Holmes's fame grows, it brings him notoriety that piques the ire of London's criminal underworld, who begin to scheme against him. It is in "The Final Problem" that Dr. Watson relates the grisly, fatal, and shocking tale of how Holmes finally meets his match, encountering the diabolical Professor Moriarty in a terrible struggle at Reichenbach Falls.
Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes sequel, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace, and Stephen Fry, will be coming to theaters in December 2011.
