Sherlock Holmes in "The Valley of Fear"

Sherlock Holmes re-appears in the September STRAND MAGAZINE.  In the New Story, “The Valley of Fear,” CONAN DOYLE has provided as much thrilling incident and excitement as was enjoyed in the case of the last Sherlock Holmes serial, “The Hound of the Baskervilles.”

No admirer of Sherlock Holmes will miss this New Masterpiece.

A brilliant, thrilling, and amazingly clever story.  It is Sherlock Holmes at his best. 

(Glasgow Herald, 26th August, 1914.)

["The Valley of Fear" was the fourth and last Sherlock Holmes novel. After being serialised in the Strand Magazine, it was published in book form in 1915.]
