This is the last Canon Sherlock Holmes story, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle just before the First World War. Yes, Sherlock is aged here, but he has aged gracefully and retains every bit of his incredible capacities at detection and acting.
In a sense, this is a sad book, since it truly is our last glimpse of Holmes and Watson as they fade into the mists of history and legend. Yet it is also a proud story of the great Detective's last case and his masterful exit from the stage of playing the Detective.
I have no doubt that he (undocumented of course) improved the strains of bees in England as a final solution to a problem...but Watson didn't tell us about that. All he told us about was his friend's last case for Crown and Country.

Sherlock Holmes is quite the complex character, and his cases are full of very unique individuals. I have really enjoyed reading Sir Doyle's short stories conveying the non-quiet life of Sherlock Holmes. Each short story is about 25-50 pages, which means that I can read the stories in my spare time without compromising any of my other daily tasks.

Yet another Conan Doyle worthy, amongst all of the chilling, surprising, and often humourous affairs and Adventures in and by which Sherlock Holmes has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of enthusiasts! His Last Bow is the fitting bow that The Final Problem certainly was not! Holmes in advancing years still retains the quickness of mind, the physical strength and litheness, and the wit that made him a dear friend and hero to so many who could never have possibly met him even if they had somehow been transported back to the Baker Street of the latter 19th century and the early 20th. In this last affair, he helps to thwart the worst and most malign intentions of the insane Adolph Hitler.

being a fan of Sherlock you want to read each and everything written for Sherlock.
This book is the last written by Doyle in Sherlock series.
It starts some German spy trying to gather the signals and ends upo with Sherlock catching the guy by enacting as an informer.

This is not at all Sherlock like and i was disappointed by the book..

I rate this book 2/5

As other reviewers have stated this is not the collection of short stories with the same name, but the single short story. Even so this one is a must for all fans of Doyle. It is a true outlier among the Holmes stories. It is told in the third person, not narrated by Watson, and it is spy thriller. This story was written, I am sure, as a patriotic ode by Doyle as a way of enlisting Holmes into the cause of the Great War. This is a format recognizable to many people as the movies with Rathbone and Bruce often took place during the next world war which was completely anachronistic to the original stories. Enjoy.

"Honour is a medieval concept"

This story starts off rather strangely for a Sherlock Holmes tale. Usually we enter the scene at Holmes's study, 221 B Baker Street. Holmes usually already has his nose on the scent of a crime and we are pulled along for the adventure.

This story starts with a study, but it is very clearly not Holmes who is the center of attention. In this very short story, Holmes has come out of retirment as a bee-keeper and has gone undercover to pose as a traitor to the British government, willing to sell secrets during WWI. In a classic double-cross, Holmes reveals his hand at the last minute to trap a German spy.

Since we only get to see Homes at the very end of the crime, we don't get to see any deductive powers in action, which is what makes Holmes so great. This story is a very typical WWII British tale with a lot of anti-German sentiment. If you've never read Holmes, don't start with this one. If you're a Holmes-phile, you might enjoy knowing he retired briefly to keep bees. Who knew?

The format of not following along with Holmes and Watson as the story began , but rather to discover that he was actually playing another part until the climax was truly refreshing. His patriotism as well as his lust for adventure are so well displayed in the intricate scheme of how he carried out his part in the ruse that brought down the villain is another example of the genius of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This is NOT the entire book, "His Last Bow", merely the single short story of that title. I don't know what Amazon is playing it by indicating a print list price of $17.99 for this -- not unless it's an antique edition! This is in the public domain in the US, the UK, and most of the rest of the world, so I'd expect a current print edition of the entire collection to only cost a few dollars.
