"The Adventure of the Speckled Band" is one of the most famous short stories of the Sherlock Holmes adventures written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes wakes Dr John Watson up early one morning, telling him that the housekeeper, Mrs Hudson, roused him because a client has arrived, a young woman. Watson gets dressed, and they find their client waiting in Holmes's waiting room. She tells them that her name is Helen Stoner, and that she lives with her stepfather, Dr Grimesby Roylott, the last survivor of the noble Roylott family of Stoke Moran. She explains that her mother met Roylott in India when she and her sister Julia were only two, but on their way back to England, her mother was killed in a railway accident. Despite this, they came to live in Stoke Moran. Holmes also learns that 1,000 pounds of the family money would go to each daughter once they married. Not to long later, though, Julia became engaged, in which she was killed in her very own room. The dying woman's words were: "The band! The speckled band!"...
