By: (1859-1930)

Lot No. 249 is a gripping and chilling collection of three short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, showcasing his mastery of suspense and intrigue. The eponymous story, Lot No. 249, is a tale of ancient Egyptian magic and reanimation that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very end. The other two stories, The Case of Lady Sannox and The Surgeon of Gaster Fell, are equally engaging and showcase Doyle's ability to craft intricate plots and intriguing characters. Overall, Lot No. 249 is a must-read for fans of mystery and horror, and a testament to Doyle's skill as a storyteller.

Book Description:
Abercrombie Smith, Edward Bellingham and William Monkhouse Lee are three students at Oxford University, sharing adjacent lodgings. When people against whom Bellingham holds a grudge are attacked, Smith starts to investigate. Is Bellingham innocent? But what are the strange noises coming from his room when he is not home?

This short gothic horror story first published in 1892 is a bit outside the usual haunts of Conan Doyle and has been compared to the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and H. Rider Haggard. - Summary by Availle
