There are numerous books devoted to the great detective Sherlock Holmes. Whether you prefer the classics or are new to the series, you can find the right book for you. This review is going to discuss some of the best books about the great detective. In particular, we’ll cover The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, and The Nine-Dragon Sigil.
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle about the great detective. Unlike previous collections, the stories in this collection are darker, exploring treachery, mutilation, and the devastating effects of infidelity. The stories are also infused with gothic elements such as crypts and blood-sucking vampires. Author David Stuart Davies, a scholar and author of many books on Sherlock Holmes, wrote the Afterword for the Macmillan Collector’s Library Sherlock Holmes volumes.
This collection contains twelve stories written by Sherlock Holmes. The stories are set in the gloomy world of the 1920s. Conan Doyle took advantage of the new conventions in fiction at the time to tell these stories, and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is an excellent example of his work.
Because of the copyright situation, the Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes isn’t yet available for download in the United States. Copyright protection will be lifted in stages. By 2023, two stories from The Case-Book will be released in the public domain. A similar situation occurs in the United Kingdom and Canada.
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes was published in 1922 by John Murray in the UK and the George H. Doran Company in the US. The book’s preface was written by Arthur Conan Doyle. It contains the stories of Sherlock Holmes and his friends.
The Adventure of the Speckled Band
The Adventure of the Speckled Band is one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was published in February 1892 as the eighth story in his collection The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The story is a detective adventure set in Victorian London and is an entertaining read.
Many critics have praised the story, which has high drama and a believable solution. Watson declares that the mystery is dark and sinister. The story also features the famous swamp adder. The conclusion is satisfying and makes it one of the best Sherlock Holmes stories.
The Adventure of the Speckled Band is a classic entry in the Sherlock Holmes series. The story begins with the death of a twin sister, Julia. Helen Stoner seeks help from Sherlock Holmes and Watson to solve the mystery. Her dead twin sister, Julia, was murdered in a mysterious fashion. Her family believes that Dr. Roylott may be the killer.
The Adventure of the Speckled Band by Thomas Hardy reflects the moral philosophy of the Sherlock Holmes stories. It highlights the triumph of good over evil. While the characters aren’t a nuanced mix, they ultimately triumph over the evil Dr. Roylott. Doyle’s philosophy suggests that justice is the natural condition of human life and that good will prevail in the end.
The Nine-Dragon Sigil
A deadly Peking plot has Sherlock Holmes on a mission to foil. In order to stop the evil plan, he must use his skills and expertise to uncover the truth about an ancient Chinese relic. But before Holmes can save the day, he must stop a ruthless peking spy first.

As a fan of the Sherlock Holmes series, you’ll want to pick up this book if you enjoy the adventures of the eponymous detective.

The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes traces the adventures of the famous detective, including his adventures in India and Tibet. It also details his time as the famous Norwegian explorer Sigerson, as well as his adventures in Japan. A big challenge in hiatus novels is the absence of Watson, so the obvious solution is to find a local substitute – a local doctor or detective. The Japanese physician in The Curious Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in Japan, meanwhile, provides the narrator, a local man who helps him solve the mystery.
