Read: A Scandal in Bohemia

For Doyle's first story about Sherlock Holmes, the ace detective is hired by a king. This tells us of the gravitas and greatness of Holmes. Also, it is interesting to note that the antagonist (?) is a woman, who matches and even surpasses Holmes' wit. Great read :)

A Scandal in Bohemia (Penguin Readers, Level 3)
Holmes is hired by the King of Bohemia to recover blackmail evidence, held by the woman whom the king once promised to marry, but who he abandoned for a woman of noble birth.
