Description - A Study In Scarlet, A by Arthur Conan Doyle
In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, thus creating an international icon in the quick-witted sleuth Sherlock Holmes. In this, the first Holmes mystery, the detective introduces himself to Dr. John H. Watson with the puzzling line You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive. And so begins Watson' s, and the world' s, fascination with this enigmatic character.
Doyle presents two equally perplexing mysteries for Holmes to solve- one a murder that takes place in the shadowy outskirts of London, in a locked room where the haunting word Rache is written upon the wall, the other a kidnapping set in the American West. Quickly picking up the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, Holmes does not fail at finding the truth - and making literary history.
