Summary Of The Book Sherlock Holmes is the quintessential fictional detective of the intellectual type. Sherlock Holmes stories defined the detective fiction genre, and since then, all fictional detectives have been held up against this standard. The tall, gaunt, ascetic figure, with his frugal taste and lifestyle and his own peculiar vanities and character quirks became a larger than life figure. The powers of observation that he prided in possessing, his ability to see details which others missed, his infallible logic, all overawed not just Dr. Watson, but also fans. Sherlock Holmes became so popular, his creator was stuck with him for life. It is more than a century since the character of Sherlock Holmes was born, but his popularity has still not waned. Generation after generation all over the World devour the stories, and it has even spawned derivative works.

It contains the four novels and all the short story collections.

The book also contains the short story collections featuring Sherlock Holmes. These include The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. At the end of the memoirs collection, Holmes is definitely presumed dead, but the author was forced to bring back the great detective by public demand. This book also contains the later Holmes short stories, after the detective comes back from the dead. These are The Return of Sherlock Holmes, His Last Bow, and The Case Files of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Stories contains the full collection of Sherlock Holmes stories with the classic illustrations.
