The True Crime Files of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the legendary author of the Sherlock Holmes novels, didn't just dwell in the imaginary world of fictional crimes. He also got involved with two real-life criminal cases-and wrote about them.

Now, "The Case of George Ernest Thompson Edalji" and "The Case of Oscar Slater" are presented in their entirety as originally written, and collected here for the first time in one volume, for true crime readers, legal-thriller fans, history buffs-and all the Sherlock Holmes fans who want to know more about the mind behind their favorite literary detective.

Synopsis:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, got involved with two actual criminal cases and published his observations. For the first time in paperback, "literary prospector" Hines presents these cases with newly rediscovered source material.

About the Author

Will remind readers of contemporary investigative efforts to free Death Row inmates. (Booklist)
