Description

Embark on an epic adventure featuring the world's foremost consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, as told by Dr. John H. Watson in the finest tradition of the Canonical stories. Comprising three parts, 'The Adventure of the Pharaoh's Curse,' 'The Problem of Threadneedle Street,' and 'The Falling Curtain,' these fully annotated tales relate one of Holmes final and most gripping adventures.
Autumn, 1909. Sherlock Holmes has been retired to the South Downs for six years, resisting all entreaties to return to his career as the world's foremost consulting detective. But the brutal murder of one of his former colleagues from Scotland Yard has finally galvanized him back into action. Dr. Watson at his side, Holmes journeys to London's British Museum, where a series of singular disappearances have taken place. With the museum staff convinced that the curse of a four thousand year-old pharaoh is emanating from the Egyptian Gallery, it is up to Holmes to prove that the worst horrors come from the minds of men. From there, a twisted riddle of the sphinx suggests that Holmes and Dr. Watson are wading through deep waters. And when the main vault at the Bank of England is inexplicably plundered, Holmes realizes that his enemies may be trying to bring down the nation itself. Only the piercing acumen of the world's foremost consulting detective could see that this theft was but the first blow, and that the villain is certain to mount another daring robbery. From a baffling series of seemingly unconnected events, Holmes must make the brilliant leaps of deduction required in order to determine where his adversary next plans to strike. Only then can Holmes set his own traps and turn the tables on his foe. But will Holmes be able to anticipate all of the forces that are aligning against him? Will the echoes of the past prove to be his undoing? And is he willing to make the sacrifice required to put a final end to this monstrous menace?
This special Collected Edition also contains the previously unpublished tale 'The Red Leech.' For the first and only time, rather than a stranger, it is a desperate Dr. Watson himself that is sitting in the client chair at 221B Baker Street. Can Holmes help save him from the clutches of the repulsive Red Leech?
