Dr. John Watson resumes his records of his friend's adventures with the adventure of the Empty House. This story alone contains several rich nuggets. The understatement of the death of Watson's wife, the introduction of the only character in Holmes lore that was a true threat on the scale of Prof. Moriarty, and the "face in the window" that would re-appear in a later adventure as well as in one of the Basil Rathbone films.
The return of the world's greatest (fictional) Detective.... If you are already familiar with Holmes brilliant powers of deduction, his keen sense of observation, his mastery at being the reknown infamous sleuth, then, well, you will want to read more. Such as the additional mysteries in this volume such as "The missimg three-quarter", "The Empty House" and more (13 stories in all).
If you have not made the acquaintance of this amazing detective, you may want to start with the well known "The Hounds of the Baskerviles" before plunging into this volume.
Any story/mystery with Holmes and Dr. Watson are worth reading and re-reading....
