After Sir Arthur Conan Doyle killed Sherlock Holmes character in one of his adventures in early 1900’s, public pressure forced him to bring the detective back to life, and explain his apparently miraculous survival of a deadly struggle with Professor Moriarty.
The Return of Sherlock Holmes was featured in a short story in Strand Magazine called “The Adventure of the Empty House”. Doyle himself has ranked this piece the sixth in his list of twelve favorite Holmes stories.
As a fine example of locked-room puzzles in Sherlock adventures, I’m sure you will like reading this piece. I have provided a free digital copy for you over here: (The Adventure of the Empty House-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
