Book description:

INSPIRATION FOR THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS

Sherlock Holmes is on the case once again. This newest collection of stories includes many of the most familiar cases Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson ever solve, including “Silver Blaze,” “The Greek Interpreter,” and “The Musgrave Ritual.” As Holmes’s fame grows, it brings him a notoriety that piques the ire of London’s criminal underworld, who begin to scheme against him. In “The Final Problem” Dr. Watson relates the grisly, fatal, and shocking tale of how Holmes finally meets his match, encountering the diabolical Professor Moriarty in a terrible struggle at Reichenbach Falls.

Guy Ritchie’s sequel to his acclaimed Sherlock Holmes (2009) is in theaters December 16, 2011. The new film stars Robert Downey, Jr. as Sherlock Holmes, Jude Law as Dr. Watson, and Stephen Fry as Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft Holmes. The film also stars Jared Harris (Mad Men), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes, Morning Glory), and Noomi Rapace (Stieg Larsson trilogy).
