The Man with the Twisted Lip, one of 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by the British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is the sixth of 12 stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It was first published in Strand Magazine in 1891. Neville St. Clair, a respectable businessman, has disappeared, and his wife claims she saw him at the upper window of an opium den. When she entered the room, she found only a beggar. St. Clair's clothes are later found in the room, and his coat, laden with coins, in the River Thames outside the window. The beggar is arrested for murder, but a few days later St. Clair's wife receives a letter from her husband. Holmes considers and watches the beggar to discover that he is actually St. Clair, who confesses that he has been leading a double life as a beggar, as the income is so large, but he promises to stop begging if Holmes will keep his secret from his wife.
