"The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" is perhaps the greatest collection of detective short stories ever written. It was these tales penned by Arthur Conan Doyle which first introduced the magical and eccentric character of Sherlock Holmes to the readers of "The Strand Magazine". In his consulting room at 22IB Baker Street, the master sleuth receives a stream of clients all presenting him with baffling and bizarre puzzles for him to solve. There is, for example, the man who is frightened for his life because of the arrival of an envelope containing orange pips; there is the terrified woman who is aware that her life is in danger and cannot explain the strange whistling sounds she hears in the night; and there is the girl whose fiance disappeared on his way to their wedding.
