The Valley of Fear is the fourth and final Sherlock Holmes novel. It is based on the supposedly real-life exploits of the Molly Maguires and Pinkerton agent James McParland.
“There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it.”
This is the original novel that introduces us to the great “consulting detective” Sherlock Holmes and his friend and chronicler, Dr. John Watson.
