Sign of Four - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
This was the second novel done by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that features Sherlock Holmes. A story about the stolen Agra treasure and the pact done by four ex-convicts.
The case started when Miss Morstan approached Doyle and asked for assistance about the pearls she's been receiving for years after her father's death. This mystery, leads to a murder and Holmes is once again on the scent of finding the culprit.
Critics say it is somewhat similar to Doyle's first novel A Study in Scarlet.
Here, Sherlock goes undercover and even fooled his friend Dr. Watson who was on the case as well, and Mr. Jones the chief assigned to their case.
Also, in this novel would be Dr. Watson finding his love and an upcoming marriage in the end.
