Good detective stories with Lestrade

If your looking for stories with only Lestrade in them. These are for you starts out with an reporter wanting stories on Sherlock Holmes but he ends up giving them stories of other detectives he worked with. Later on becomes his memoirs telling about his life as an detective. Would have like them to remain with the report coming and asking for more stories.
