Valley Of Fear by Conan Doyle[abridged] The Valley of Fear is a stand-alone tale
___The Valley of Fear is notable for the involvement of Professor Moriarty, which contradicts the timeline of the story. In The Final Problem, Dr. Watson was first alerted by Sherlock Holmes to the existence of Professor Moriarty. In the same story, Professor Moriarty dies in the confrontation with Sherlock Holmes, as explained in The Adventure of the Empty House, leaving no time in between the two events for any other story regarding the Professor. However, in The Valley of Fear, Professor Moriarty has been mentioned by Sherlock, and Dr. Watson had appeared to know both about the Professor's evil acts, and how little he is known.
