His Last Bow is a collection of eight Sherlock Holmes stories (seven in some editions) by Arthur Conan Doyle, first in The Strand Magazine September 1908 to December 1913, plus the one-off title story (September 1917), also called A Reminiscence of Mr. Sherlock Holmes. "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" was originally in two parts: "The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles" and "The Tiger of San Pedro" (as presented in this edition).     "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge"     "The Adventure of The Cardboard Box"     "The Adventure of the Red Circle"     "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans"     "The Adventure of the Dying Detective"     "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax"     "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot"     "His Last Bow" (told in the third person) Most American editions (as this one) of the canon also contain the story "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", which is in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes in most British editions, between the first and the second story, as is also included in our edition of that title. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a Scottish physician and writer, most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, generally considered a milestone in the field of crime fiction, and for the adventures of Professor Challenger. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels. Sherlock Holmes is a London-based "consulting detective" whose abilities border on the fantastic, Holmes is famous for his astute logical reasoning, his ability to adopt almost any disguise, and his use of forensic science skills to solve difficult cases. Holmes, who first appeared in publication in 1887, was featured in four novels and 56 short stories.  Novels: A Study in Scarlet (1887), The Sign of the Four (1890), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902) and The Valley of Fear (1915). Short stories: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1892), The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (1894), The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1905), His Last Bow (1917) and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (1927).

(Three-and-a-half stars, really...)

Conan Doyle's penultimate collection of Holmes short stories really shows the central elements of his work so well: bracing atmospheres, a delightful central pairing, and an eye for acts of murderous legerdemain on the one hand; stilted dialogue, lack of suspects, and often one-dimensional characters on the other.

All of the stories here are very enjoyable, although I'd probably rank none of them on my list of "Top Ten". Wisteria Lodge, which opens the collection, is almost a novella and certainly has a lot in common - thematically and structurally - with the early novels. The Red Circle and Lady Frances Carfax also offer nothing new in terms of ideas. However, all three stories have an expertly-rendered atmosphere, and play well along the relationship of Holmes and Watson. The Devil's Foot does the same, although it has the added benefit of a truly unsettling mystery set-up. It's easy to see from these stories that, by this point, Conan Doyle knows his strengths lie in the Holmes/Watson pairing and the unsettling atmospheres, and he jumps at the chance to provide those.

As with all his works, the dialogue can sometimes be stilted. Not so much with the main characters, or the recurring police inspectors, but with the guest characters, who often lack strong voices (although I'm sure some fans will ascribe this to errors on Doctor Watson's part, and not on the author's?). And interestingly (or unfortunately?) most of the stories have very few suspects - indeed, sometimes we only seem to meet one person connected to the deceased in any detail, which may give the game away. In fact, the question tends to be not "whodunnit?" but "howdunnit?". But perhaps this is fair enough, since the overall emphasis is often on the implausibility or seeming incomprehensibility of the case, rather than the nature of the crime itself.

The Bruce-Partington Plans is an intriguing story, a fusion of spy and detective work which - although, again, means the revelation of the culprit is relatively unimportant - has a fun, pulpy sense of 'the chase'. It allows Holmes and Watson to work as a wonderful team, with a cameo by Holmes' evasive brother Mycroft. The Dying Detective's plot twists will fool no one, but if you've read all the rest of the stories to date, there's plenty to enjoy in a story that so feeds off the relationship of our two heroes.

And finally there is the title story, His Last Bow. I'm not sure if it was written genuinely as a finale, but it certainly is chronologically. This is a disappointment in some ways, since our heroes feature in it only for a short time. But there's a true sense of separation and loss at the end which affected me a little. Unfortunately, the story itself isn't very good: the dialogue is arch, the villain zero-dimensional, and the actions of our heroes at the end (especially given it is set just days before WWI breaks out) would probably not be advised by the Home Office.

In closing: this is not a collection for Holmes newcomers. But it's certainly a vital part of the canon, and well worth a look. ( )

As per usual, I enjoyed the hell out of this slim volume. For the most part, even though there are times where you can almost feel Arthur Conan Doyle really reaching for a new, unique challenge for Holmes and Watson, he still manages to pull off entertaining stories every time. ( )

I listened to this book through a podcast called Audiobooks Daily. I highly recommend it as it has free books you can listen to while going about your day. ( )

A late edition to the Watson and Holmes mysteries, with a fabulous finishing touch of espionage to round it out as Holmes and Watson undertake a mission in defensive of England as WW1 begins.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record.... another excellent installment of the series. ( )

There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared.

Conan Doyle used His Last Bow as the title of both a short story, and a collection of 8 short stories that included the story of the same title. This work is for the collection of 8 short stories; DO NOT combine it with the work that represents the individual short story.
Please do not combine it with other editions - the stories are taken from different volumes.
