The Valley of Fear is the final Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The story was first published in the Strand Magazine between September 1914 and May 1915. The first book edition was published in New York on 27 February 1915.
The Valley of Fear, notable for Professor Moriarty's involvement, is set in the late 1880s, some years before The Final Problem, the short story in which Moriarty was introduced.
The novel uses the same structural device as the first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet; both stories include a lengthy flashback to America, and both stories involve people running around the world to avoid paying for a vengeance with their lives.
