Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arthur Conan Doyle's celebrated sleuth is coming to the big screen care of a new major motion picture, but this telling of "A Study in Scarlet" puts the mystery right in your hands, re-presented with an all-new cover by celebrated graphic illustrator Ashley Wood The novel is split into two separate halves. The first is titled "Being a Reprint from the Reminiscences of John Watson, M.D., Late of the Army Medical Department." This section is told in first person by Holmes' friend Doctor John H. Watson and describes his introduction in 1881 to Sherlock Holmes through a mutual friend and the first mystery in which he followed Holmes' investigations. The mystery revolves around a corpse found at a derelict house in Brixton, England with the word RACHE scrawled in blood on the wall beside the body. The second half of the story is called "The Country of the Saints" and jumps to the United States of America and the Mormon community, incorporating a depiction of the Danites, including an appearance by Brigham Young in a somewhat villainous context. It is told in a third person narrative style, with an omniscient narrator, before returning in the last two chapters to Watson's account of Holmes' investigation, and then Holmes' own explanation of his solution. In these two chapters the relationship between the two halves of the novel becomes apparent. The motive for the crime is essentially one of lost love and revenge.

Synopsis:

The Sherlock Holmes tales of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are re-presented in chronological order with all-new full-color illustrations by celebrated artist Kelley Jones. Chronologically the first story of Holmes's life, "The Gloria Scott" begins Sherlock Holmes Volume 1 with a narration of the nascent detective's first true case. In "The Musgrave Ritual," another one of the few stories told by Holmes, the detective describes a case that involved the Crown of England. "A Study in Scarlet" is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first novel about Holmes, and details Watson's introduction to Holmes, who follows the detective on two investigations. Holmes and Watson again solve complex murder cases in "The Speckled Band" and "The Resident Patient." In "The Beryl Coronet," the duo help avoid a national scandal by deducing the real criminals behind an attempted burglary, while "The Reigate Squires" adds blackmail to the mix. This volume includes: "The 'Gloria Sott'," "The Musgrave Ritual," "A Study in Scarlet," "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," "The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet," "The Resident Patient," and "The Reigate Squires."

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was both a doctor and a believer in spirits, which may partly explain why his Sherlock Holmes is one of literature's most beloved detectives: Holmes always approaches his cases with the gentility and logic of a scientist, but the stories are suffused with an aura of the supernatural. Narrated by devoted assistant Dr. John H. Watson, Holmes's adventures were so addictive that fans protested the master deducer's "death" in 1893 and Doyle had to resurrect him.
