The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place

by Arthur Conan Doyle (Author)

"The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place" is the very last Sherlock Holmes story. This ultimate investigation takes him to Berkshire, to a racing stable called Shoscombe Old Place. It's the head trainer, John Mason, who has asked for Holmes' help, although he is not sure exactly what he wants him to investigate. All he knows is that strange things have been happening. The owner of the stables, Lady Beatrice Falder, has suddenly stopped coming to greet her favourite horse. Sir Robert, her brother, has been looking very strange of late. Furthermore, he has given his sister's dog away and has been seen at night meeting an unknown man in the old crypt. And human bones have been found in the furnace. This is enough to spark Holmes curiosity and he takes on the case.

"The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place" is part of "The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes".
