A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
Two short Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Scandal in Bohemia
The Story: Sherlock Holmes finds himself evenly matched when he
is employed by the King of Bohemia to retrieve an indiscreet photograph
from the American actress and singer, Irene Adler.
The Story: Holmes and Watson investigate the strange case of
Jabez Wilson, who was recently offered employment by an organization
known as the Red Headed League. For the grand sum of 4 pounds per week,
he was to sit in an office and copy out entries from an encyclopedia,
starting with the letter A. When after several weeks his employment is
suddenly terminated, Mr. Wilson doesn't know what to think. Holmes
quickly deduces that it was the location of his office as much as his
red hair that resulted in him getting the employment in the first place.
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
