The adventures included in this edition are: The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Man with the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Final Problem, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Empty House, The Adventure of the Priory School, and The Adventure of the Six Napoleons.
Four Sherlock Holmes stories are re-told in an adapted version. They are: The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Red-Headed League, The Adventure of the Six Napoleons, and The Empty House. The adapter explains that the final story is a blend of two of the original Holmes stories. A biography of Holmes is included.
Each novel, complete in just 80-pages, has been painstakingly adapted to retain the integrity of the original work. Each provides the reader a sense of the author's style and an understanding of the novel's theme.
At the time Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created Sherlock Holmes, the most famous detective in fiction, most stories were told in parts in magazines over many months. The problem with that, Doyle thought, was that if readers happened to miss the first part, they would not be interested in picking up the story later. So he decided to write stories that were complete in one issue and had main characters that reappeared in future adventures.
