Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The phenomenal history of the famous detective is finally compiled in one convenient volume for Holmes fans and scholars alike. No other volume on the classic novels and stories describes so fully the history of the character, from conception to his resurrection after his untimely death. Also included is a biography of author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, providing context for this timeless character. Cawthorne covers everything from the short stories to the film adaptations and why Holmes is such an enduring popular figure.

Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, Sherlock Homes appears in four novels and fifty-six short stories and continues to have a perennial allure as the ultimate sleuth. In this outstanding introduction, Cawthorne covers everything from the short stories to the film adaptations and why Holmes is such an enduring popular figure.
