The Sign of Four

£14.99

Product description

John Murray 1963
Conan Doyle Uniform Edition
Hardback with dust jacket
Good condition - fading to dust jacket along with general shelf wear and some small marks, discolouration on inside of front flap, corner of front flap has been neatly cut off. Bumped corner on top of spine, two bumps to edges, discolouration on first page under flap of dust jacket, library slip on front free end paper, speckled page edges.

As a dense yellow fog swirls through the streets of London, a deep melancholy has descended on Sherlock Holmes, who sits in a cocaine-induced haze at 221B Baker Street. His mood is only lifted by a visit from a beautiful but distressed young woman - Mary Morstan, whose father vanished ten years before. Four years later she began to receive an exquisite gift every year: a large, lustrous pearl. Now she has had an intriguing invitation to meet her unknown benefactor and urges Holmes and Watson to accompany her. And in the ensuing investigation - which involves a wronged woman, a stolen hoard of Indian treasure, a wooden-legged ruffian, a helpful dog and a love affair - even the jaded Holmes is moved to exclaim, 'Isn't it gorgeous!'
