All four legendary Sherlock Holmes novels, collected in a unique Graphic Deluxe Edition with an introduction by Michael Dirda Though endlessly reinterpreted, reinvented, and imitated, the Sherlock Holmes stories have never been surpassed. Sporting his signature billowing coat and pipe in hand, the genius investigator Holmes captivates readers with his alluring melancholy and superhuman intuition, while his partner, Dr. Watson, remains ever the perfect foil, a classic Victorian gentleman with brilliant intellect. Collected here are all four Holmes novels-A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Valley of Fear-tracing the origins of the pair up through showdowns with their greatest archenemies, including the infamous Professor Moriarty.

The Adventure of Silver Blaze: A Sherlock Holme...
9,95 € *

The Adventure of Silver Blaze, one of the 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is one of 12 in the cycle collected as ´´The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes´´. Doyle ranked ´´Silver Blaze´´ 13th in a list of his 19 favourite Sherlock Holmes stories. One of the most popular Sherlock Holmes short stories, ´´Silver Blaze´´ focuses on the disappearance of the eponymous race horse (a famous winner) on the eve of an important race and on the apparent murder of its trainer. The tale is distinguished by its atmospheric Dartmoor setting and late-Victorian sporting milieu. It also features some of Conan Doyle´s most effective plotting, hinging on the ´´curious incident of the dog in the night-time.´´ Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson travel by train to Dartmoor to investigate a crime of disappearance of the great race horse Silver Blaze and the murder of the horse´s trainer, John Straker. Holmes and Watson arrive at King´s Pyland, from which Silver Blaze is missing. Fitzroy Simpson has come to Dartmoor (and specifically to King´s Pyland) to gather information relating to his professional activities, and has become a suspect in the murder. However, to Holmes, from the outset, there seem to be a number of facts that do not fit the inspector´s case against Simpson, damning as it looks. It seems odd, for instance, that he would lead the horse out on to the moor simply to injure or kill him. That could be done right in his stall. He could not have stolen the animal. What good would such a famous thoroughbred be to him? Why has an exhaustive search of the neighbourhood not turned up Silver Blaze? What has Simpson done with him? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carol Phillips. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/edel/007081/bk_edel_007081_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Cristiano Ronaldo
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ronaldo ist dreimaliger Weltfußballer des Jahres, Champions-League-Sieger, mehrfacher Englischer und Spanischer Meister. Für Real Madrid erzielte er bisher in über 200 Einsätzen durchschnittlich mehr als ein Tor pro Spiel, eine von Spielern einer europäischen Top-Liga im 21. Jahrhundert unerreichte Quote. Sein Torinstinkt ist legendär - ebenso wie sein arrogantes Auftreten und seine Obsession, der Beste sein zu wollen. Das ist seine Geschichte. Der Film beleuchtet den Werdegang des weltbekannten Fußballstars - von seinen bescheidenen Anfängen in der Akademie von Sporting Lissabon, über seinen Durchbruch bei Manchester United und seiner steilen Karriere bei Real Madrid bis hin zum heutigen Weltfußballer. Trotz seines fußballerischen Könnens - was den Trainern besonders in Erinnerung bleibt, ist Ronaldos Entschlossenheit, seine Charakterstärke. Neben Superstar Ronaldo selbst kommen auch zahlreiche weitere Berühmtheiten aus der Fußball-Welt wie David Beckham, Pele, Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Gary Lineker und Sir Bobby Charlton zu Wort. Die DVD beinhaltet neben der deutschen Synchro auch die englische Originalversion. Erzähler des einstündigen Porträts des Ausnahmefußballers ist der englische Star-Schauspieler Benedict Cumberbatch (SHERLOCK)
