He and his trusted friend, Dr. Watson, step from Holmes's comfortable quarters at 221b Baker Street into the swirling fog of Victorian London to combine detailed observation and vast knowledge with brilliant deduction. Inevitably, Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the guilty, and solves the most perplexing puzzles known to literature. &&LBR&&R&&LBR&&R&&LI&&RVolume II&&L/I&&R of &&LI&&RThe Complete Sherlock Holmes&&L/I&&R begins with &&LI&&RThe Return of Sherlock Holmes&&L/I&&R. &&LB&&RSir Arthur Conan Doyle&&L/B&&R, tired of writing about Holmes, had killed him off at the end of "The Final Problem," the last tale in &&LI&&RThe Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes&&L/I&&R (found in &&LI&&RVolume I&&L/I&&R of &&LI&&RThe Complete Sherlock Holmes&&L/I&&R). Public demand for new Holmes stories was so great, however, that Conan Doyle eventually resurrected him. The first story in &&LI&&RThe Return&&L/I&&R, "The Adventure of the Empty House," features Conan Doyle's infamously inventive explanation of how Holmes escaped what seemed like certain death.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RThis volume also includes two other collections of Holmes stories, &&LI&&RHis Last Bow&&L/I&&R and &&LI&&RThe Case Book of Sherlock Holmes&&L/I&&R; Conan Doyle's final full-length Holmes novel, &&LI&&RThe Valley of Fear&&L/I&&R; a pair of parodies, "The Field Bazaar" and "How Watson Learned the Trick"; and two essays about the "private life" of the beloved sleuth.&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R &&L/P&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RKyle Freeman&&L/B&&R, a Sherlock Holmes enthusiast for many years, earned two graduate degrees in English literature from Columbia University, where his major was twentieth-century British literature.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R
