This book tells the story behind the greatest detective in history. Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, Sherlock Holmes appears in four novels and fifty-six short stories. Although Holmes was not the first literary detective, he continues to have a perennial allure as the ultimate sleuth. As Holmes is being re-introduced to a new audience through TV and film, Cawthorne introduces readers to Holmes. He gives a full biography of the author as well as his creation, including his resurrection following his unlikely death at the hands of arch-enemy, Moriarty. Cawthorne also surveys the world of Holmes, looking at Victorian crime, the real characters behind Dr. Watson and Inspector Lestrade, as well as the world on the doorstep of 221b Baker Street. This is essential reading for old and new fans alike. - Back cover.
