Arthur Conan Doyle - The Sign of Four (2nd Hand Paperback)
The Sign of Four means murder . . .
A dense yellow miasma swirls in the streets of London as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson accompany a beautiful young woman to a sinister assignation.
For Mary Morstan has received several large pearls - one a year for the last six years - and now a mystery letter telling her she is a wronged woman. Now she is to meet her unknown benefactor, bringing with her two companions.
But unbeknownst to all, others stalk London's fog enshrouded streets - a one-legged ruffian with revenge on his mind - and his companion, who places no value on human life.
It is in this, the second Holmes novel, that the great detective comes fully to life - not only as a melancholic and an inscrutable master of deduction, but also as an incurable drug addict.
The Sign of Four remains a small masterpiece of suspense, and the novel has enjoyed a steady readership ever since its first publication in 1890. In recent years, however, it has not been readily available except as a part of larger omnibus Holmes anthologies.
