      • books became famous, but in 1906,
      • when his wife died, he went mad. He
      • died in 1930.
      Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
      • Arthur Conan Doyle was famous for his stories starring the detective Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
      • His most famous novels are:

      • Sherlock Holmes
      • The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1902
      • Sherlock Holmes - The Adventure of the Three Students in 1904
      • One day, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes had a visitor,
      • Dr. Huxtable, who asked him to help him to find one of his
      • students, Arthur who was missing. Dr. Huxtable was the
      • headmaster of a school for boys and Arthur was the Duke of
      • Holdernesse’s son, a very important and
      • rich person. The German teacher was
      • missing too. He took his bicycle with him.
      • Holmes and Watson went to the Dr
      • Hutable’s school where they met the
      • Duke and his secretary, Mr. James Wilder .
      Sherlock Holmes and the Duke's son
      • After considering a series of elements, Holmes said that the
      • boy and the teacher went across the moor, as confirmed by
      • the boy’s hat that one of the gardeners found in the moor.
      • The day after, Watson and Holmes walked across the moor to
      • look for the tracks of a bicycle. They only saw cow tracks. At
      • last they found some tracks of a bicycle but they were of a
      • different kind. Then, they found Mr. Heidegger’s corpse behind
      • a bush. Holmes and Watson visited the places around the
      • school too. So they went to the “Green Man Inn”. There, they
      • met Mr. Hayes, the owner .
      • Holmes visited the stables too, where he saw that
      • the horses had old shoes but new nails. Holmes
      • suspected Hayes to know everything about the
      • kidnapping. Then, they
      • saw Mr. Wilder coming
      • By bike at the Inn. He
      • looked scared. He left
      • His bicycle and went
      • away by horse. The
      • bike’s tyre had the
      • same track they saw
      • in the moor, so they
      • suspected Mr. Wilder too.
      • Then Holmes went to the Duke’s. He told him that Wilder was
      • his illegitimate son and that he had kidnapped Arthur because
      • he wanted to become the new Duke, while Mr. Hayes helped
      • him and killed the German teacher. The Duke knew that
      • Arthur was at the “Green Man Inn” while James was going to
      • Australia as he did not want to be arrested. Holmes asked the
      • Duke why Hayes’s horse made cow tracks in the mud and he
      • showed the detective a pair of old horse shoes which looked like
      • cow’s foot. Then Holmes took his cheque as a reward
      • for his work, also because he despised the
      • Duke for his behavior as he didn’t help
      • Arthur when James told him that he had
      • kidnapped him.
      • The teenager John Watson, decided to become a doctor,
      • meets the young Sherlock Holmes, well regarded by teachers. A group of five
      • rich and successful British men are being targeted by a mysterious figure with
      • a cloak, which uses a blowgun to shoot small spines on the neck of his
      • victims. The plugs, wet with poison, push them to suicide. Holmes suspects
      • the incident and he, his girlfriend Elizabeth and Watson begin to
      • investigate. Clue after clue they come across different objects and a large
      • Egyptian pyramid. They go inside and discover a set to perform a
      • ceremony in which young girls are sacrificed. On the banks of the Thames,
      • the members of the cult hit and kill Elizabeth with the gun and then
      • engage in a fight with Holmes: Sherlock prevails over his opponents who
      • disappeared in the icy water, and can only give a last farewell to his
      • beloved that dies between his arms.
      The pyramid of Fear
      • The Sherlock Holmes Museum  in London is located 
      • in Baker Street to number 234, next to 221B Baker Street,
      • the address  chosen by Arthur Conan Doyle as
      • the residence of his famous detective. The museum is run by
      • the nonprofit International Sherlock Holmes Society. In
      • the past, between 1860 and 1936, the
