His Last Bow (1917)

  • Michael J. Crowe


Crowe provides an analysis centered on the idea of a Gestalt shift of the eight Holmes stories anthologized in His Last Bow. Included are some of the very best Holmes stories such as “The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans,” “The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax,” and “His Last Bow.”
