The Valley of Fear by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Valley of Fear is the last Sherlock Holmes novel, in which Holmes and his assistant Watson finally begin to understand the threat their arch-nemesis Moriarty presents.
When Holmes receives a tip-off from within Moriarty's circle that a man is in danger, he and Watson rush to the victim's house. They are too late. Yet certain suspicious circumstances around the death suggest that there is a greater - and more terrifying - mystery still to solve . . .
About the Author
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh where he qualified as a doctor, but it was his writing which brought him fame, with the creation of Sherlock Holmes, the first scientific detective. He was also a convert to spiritualism and a social reformer who used his investigative skills to prove the innocence of individuals.
