Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly - see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre.<br /><br />Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to Conan Doyle's death in 1930. The stories cover a period from around 1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914.<br /><br />This collection contains all the 60 official and the 6 unofficial Sherlock Holmes stories - in total 66 works (the biggest and greatest Sherlock Holmes collection in the eBook world).

There are killers who stalk their prey, learning all they can about an intended target before striking. Some commit the act of murder out of hatred or revenge for someone in their lives. Killers like Detlev Guenzel searched for like-minded souls who would allow them to indulge in their deepest darkest fantasies. Then of course, there are those who brutally murder for no apparent reason whatsoever. <br /><br />Each of the four true crime murder cases in this true crime anthology are all different from each other in many ways. The wife who was cast aside for a much younger model; the vore who sought out a willing participant in the act of consensual homicide and cannibalism; the young man who butchered his elderly neighbours; and the man whose partners either disappeared or turned up dead over the period of 54 years. <br /><br />For these true crime murder stories we delve into the background of each killer, the acts they committed, and the criminal investigation that brought them down. We look at why they killed, even when there seems to be no apparent motive. True murder cases like these are hard to fathom, and will leave you wondering about the horrors of humanity. True crime stories are the most frightening of all, as you discover what people have the capability of doing to others.<br /><br />This is a prequel to Jack Rosewood's best true crime books series, True Crime Stories.

<h2>If you're ready to learn how to become a spy and improve your tactical skills, then this book is for you!</h2><br /><b>Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.</b><br /><br />Despite their very purpose of lying low and going unnoticed, the Spy has become quite a popular figure in our society. Thanks to big screen icons like James Bond and his peers, the life of a spy is coveted by many a starry-eyed child due to its glamorous, jet-setting, and fast-paced lifestyle. Make no mistake, however; the life of a covert agent isn’t all fancy cocktail parties and swanky black outfits. Becoming a spy requires rigorous training and a lifetime of dedication. Only "the best of the best" get selected to go on high-stake missions overseas to gather information in service of their country. Even with their top-notch qualifications, spies rarely if ever get a glimpse of the fame and fortune depicted in movies. As the mere concept of a spy entails, their job is to be unseen and unheard.<br /><br />If being the unsung hero or the dark knight of your country appeals to you, then you are on the right path. Becoming a covert operative will be grueling work, no doubt, but with this guide’s help, you might just be on your way to becoming one of the elite who serves justice in the shadows.

<b>This classic study profiles serial killers, gentleman murderers, and every stripe of madman in between</b><br /><br /> Benjamin Pitezel should never have trusted H. H. Holmes. In 1894, the two men conspired to fake Pitezel’s death for the sake of a $10,000 insurance settlement. But Holmes decided murder would be simpler. He killed his partner, kidnapped three of his children, and tried to claim the insurance money as his own. The scheme unraveled and Holmes killed the children as well. When he was caught, the police had no idea they had captured one of the vilest murderers in American history. The Pitezel murders were only the tip of a very bloody iceberg.<br />  <br /> The chilling case of H. H. Holmes—famously recounted in Erik Larson’s award-winning bestseller, <i>The Devil in the White City</i>—is but one of the true crime tales contained in this remarkable work. Author H. B. Irving understood the public’s lurid fascination with murder, and in this seminal study he shows readers the many faces of evil.<br />
