Synopsis

When Dr John Watson takes rooms in Baker Street with amateur detective Sherlock Holmes, he has no idea that he is about to enter a shadowy world of criminality and violence. Accompanying Holmes to an ill-omened house in south London, Watson is startled to find a dead man whose face is contorted in a rictus of horror. There is no mark of violence on the body yet a single word is written on the wall in blood. Dr Watson is as baffled as the police, but Holmes' brilliant analytical skills soon uncover a trail of murder, revenge and lost love.

Customer Reviews

The first Sherlock Holmes novel is still a great read over a hundred years since its original publication. Perhaps it doesn't quite hit the heights of some of the short stories (particularly those found in the 'adventures' collection), but this is definitely the place to start. Highly recommended.

This remarkable novella first appeared in Beeton’s Christmas Annual for 1887 and was Conan Doyle’s first significant work of fiction. Being a reprint from the reminiscences of John H Watson MD, we are introduced to Sherlock Holmes for the very first time. An unexplained murder reveals its antecedents in a travesty of justice in Salt Lake City, Utah. - Tristan.
