His Last Bow - Arthur Conan Doyle Book Description

On the eve of the First World War, Von Bork, a German agent, is getting ready to leave England with his vast collection of intelligence, gathered over a four-year period. His wife and household have already left Harwich for Flushing in the Netherlands, leaving only him and his elderly housekeeper. Von Bork's diplomat friend, Baron von Herling, is impressed by his collection of vital British military secrets, and tells Von Bork that he will be received in Berlin as a hero. Von Bork indicates that he is waiting for one last transaction with his Irish-American informant, Altamont, who will arrive shortly with a rich treasure: naval signals.

  • Sherlock Holmes His last Bow

    By Delta Gram
    This book has been fascinating to read. I quite like the way Arthur Doyle writes his mysteries using Sherlock and Holmes. The manor of writing and the choice of words is like a history lesson in early nineteenth century England. This is my first full length novel by Mr. Doyle and I love it.
  • Contains single story, not collection

    By Casualsherlockholmesfan
    Although the title is "His Last Bow", and that is certainly the name of the story contained, "His Last Bow" is also the name of a collection of stories containing this one. There seems to be no option to obtain this collection from this source, quite a disappointment considering how excellent it has been with providing most of the series.
