Description
Gathering together in one volume the later exploits of Sherlock Holmes, the world's first consulting detective, His Last Bow includes tales published individually between 1908 and 1917. It also contains one early story, 1892's "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box," which, with its themes of adultery, was previously considered too "scandalous" for American audiences.Here, Holmes must contend with mysterious bearded men, stolen secret submarine plans, a missing lady aristocrat, and his own near-fatal illness. The stories contained in His Last Bow are "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge," "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box," "The Adventure of the Red Circle," "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans," "The Adventure of the Dying Detective," "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax," "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot," and "His Last Bow."

display_description "His Last Bow" was meant to be the last of the Holmes stories, and is given the subtitle "An Epilogue of Sherlock Holmes". Doyle did pen and publish a subsequent collection of stories, The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes, but all the stories in that collection "take place" a decade or more before "His Last Bow." The story is unusual in that it is one of only a couple of Holmes stories not written in the first person; most of the Holmes' stories, and all of the novels are written from the point of view of Dr. Watson, Holmes' faithful companion, and a few stories are written from Holmes' own perspective. This story, though, was written in the 3rd person, perhaps because Doyle wanted to present this story of espionage thwarted in such a way that Holmes' entrance comes as something of a surprise, though the subtitle kind of serves as a spoiler.
