Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We wish a statement, Mr. Scott Eccles, as to the events which led upto the death last night of Mr. Aloysius Garcia, of Wisteria Lodge, nearEsher

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. 1. The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles 2. The Tiger of San Pedro. John Scott Eccles. I find it recorded in my notebook that it was a bleak and windy daytowards the end of March in the year 1892. Holmes had received atelegram while we sat at our lunch, and he had scribbled a reply. Aloysius Garcia, of Wisteria Lodge, nearEsher. Our client had sat up with staring eyes and every tinge of colourstruck from his astonished face.

The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge (WIST) is a short story written by Arthur Conan Doyle first published in the Collier's magazine, 15 august 1908 (US) and in The Strand Magazine in september-october 1908 (UK). This is the 41st Sherlock Holmes story. Collected in His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes. in Collier's (15 august 1908 ) 6 illustrations by Frederic Dorr Steele. in The Strand Magazine (september & october 1908 ) 10 ill. by Arthur Twidle.

The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is one of the fifty-six Sherlock Holmes short stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle. One of eight stories in the volume His Last Bow, it is a lengthy, two-part story consisting of "The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles" and "The Tiger of San Pedro", which on original publication in The Strand bore the collective title of "A Reminiscence of Mr. Sherlock Holmes".

When you've got a hankering for classic detective fiction, only the very best will do. "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is one of the original Sherlock . It's an intriguing read for first-time readers and confirmed Conan Doyle fans alike. "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is one of the original Sherlock Holmes tales penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but this lengthy tale unfurls in two parts, straying from many of the familiar themes and structures of other Holmes stories.

The curved and shadowed drive led us to a low, dark house, pitch-black against a slate-coloured sky. From the front window upon the left of the door there peeped a glimmer of a feeble light. There's a constable in possession," said Baynes. I'll knock at the window.

Eccles was going to tell us about it when you entered the room. I think, Watson, a brandy and soda would do him no harm. Our visitor had gulped off the brandy and the colour had returned. With a dubious glance at the inspector's notebook, he plunged at once into his extraordinary statement.

Born in Arthur Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859 at 11 Picardy Place, Edinburgh, Scotland. From 1876 - 1881 he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh following which he was employed as a doctor on the Greenland whaler Hope of Peterhead in 1880 and, after his graduation, as a ship's surgeon on the SS Mayumba during a voyage to the West African coast in 1881. Arriving in Portsmouth in June of that year with less than £10 (£700 today) to his name, he set up a medical practice at 1 Bush Villas in Elm Grove, Southsea. The practice was initially not very successful

Holmes is an institution and although he is almost outsmarted in this short story by the attending member of the police it is the usual well written plot with a final twist.

The problem for me was the overt racism, obviously signs of the Victorian era but difficult to read in2017.

As with all Sherlock Holmes mysteries--those by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and not later pretenders, excepting perhaps Adrian Doyle's few efforts--I truly enjoy reading and re-reading the exploits of the famous detective. Outside of Holmesian enthusiasts, few realise that Conan Doyle was himself the model for Holmes AND Watson, being a medical doctor, and one of the first unofficial consulting detectives anywhere. That designation, "unofficial consulting detective," claimed by Holmes, was one of Conan Doyle's own defining titles. In Doyle, and his combined alter egos, Holmes and Watson, we have the incipient modern "private detective," but with a far greater sense of scientific deduction and evidence gathering.

In "The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" we have many good examples of Doyle's own methods of deduction, and his working at seeming odds with the official police forces, while in reality complimenting their efforts, and never detracting from their own successes, indeed, often giving them the credit for his own discoveries and resolutions of criminal mysteries.

Another great Sherlock Holmes story. This wasn't my favorite mystery, but I still enjoyed it. Watson gets to be the star of the show for a little while, which is always entertaining. :)

"The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

"The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is one of the many cases of Sherlock Homes. The story has an interesting and bizarre plot as you see it unfold. As the story twists and turns it is remarkable how the story comes to a conclusion for Sherlock Homes.

This is a review of the free Kindle version.

The story is a typical Holmes story, with the notable exception of a policeman who is actually comparable to Holmes in ability. Very unusual in the mythos, as even Gregory doesn't have the necessary imagination. If you like Holmes, I recommend this free download.

The reason I drop it a star is the lousy Kindle formatting. The mutilation of the paragraphs is really inexcusable. This needs a good clean up badly. No reflection on Doyle, of course.

Concise, short Holmes story in typical Doyle fashion. Enjoyable, but less detailed than the longer Holmes adventures. A pleasant read.

I'm a HUGE fan of Sherlock Holmes ,so I obviously love this one. However,before reading this one,you may want to know that ,though he's in the book,Sherlock Holmes doesn't actually solve this case. I had no problem with it,but someone else might,so I'm just warning you.but seriously,Sherlock Holmes may be old books,but they are truly amazing,so I highly recommend any book that says "sir Arthur Conan Doyle" on the front
I am reading Sherlock in a two book full collection. Using the books are tiring to hold all the time and I find I do like to switch off to my Kindle. I was disappointed to find that this download is only twenty minutes of the end of The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge. I did not read this download ads I opted to just read it in paper when I come to this story.
