Part 4: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes is back on the case in these sparkling short stories, in which we learn about Holmes' early days as a sleuth, encounter a seemingly murderous widow and meet the great detective's brother, Mycroft, for the first time. And, in 'The Final Problem', Holmes comes face-to-face with his nemesis, Professor Moriarty, in a battle of wits that could kill them both.
'... it was reading the Sherlock Holmes stories as a boy that first turned me on to the power of writing and storytelling.' Stephen Fry
