The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Finished on 5/5/2018
Since Doyle created the immortal Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson, no other mystery writer has come close to eclipsing him as the standard bearer in crime fiction. A brilliant London-based “consulting detective,” Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning, and inference to solve difficult cases.

An Anthology of Mystery Stories
This is an anthology of some of Sherlock Holmes’ best mysteries. They are universally excellent.
I read A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man with a Twisted Lip and the Adventure of the Speckled Band. All were good.
