Introducing the Newest Edition:
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.”
Sherlock Holmes’s observation to Dr. Watson at the start of “A Case of Identity” is certainly borne out by the twelve short stories in this collection, characterized by the originality and inventiveness that has made Conan Doyle a household name. The familiar sanctuary of 221B Baker Street is regularly invaded by a procession of puzzled clients with bizarre problems to solve.
Holmes’s cases include a young engineer who arrives with one of his thumbs cut off at the root; a governess who has been offered a tempting salary provided she dresses in the exact manner specified by her employers; and a visit from a frightened young woman whose sister has inexplicably died from fear and nervous shock. These and other seemingly intractable puzzles are solved by Sherlock Holmes’s inimitable blend of intellectual analysis and inspired deduction. Like the faithful Watson, in these stories the reader can enjoy their position at the center of events, and admire the master of detection at work.
Throughout a career spanning 30 years, Geoffrey Zakarian has made his mark as a chef restaurateur known for his sophisticated taste and signature style. Zakarian is also an accomplished award winning author and Emmy nominated television personality. In addition to his status as a longtime favorite judge on Food Network’s Chopped and as an Iron Chef, Zakarian is a co-host on Food Network’s daytime series, The Kitchen, as well as the host of Food Network’s primetime hit, Cooks Vs. Cons.
