  • File Size: 92770 Bytes


The word Rache, written in blood on the wall at the scene of a murder, marked Sherlock Holmes’ introduction to the world.  Published in 1887, A Study in Scarlet presented Holmes as a new type of hero, one who uses razor sharp powers of deduction and minute attention to detail to solve cases too hard for Scotland Yard.  Sherlock Holmes’ brilliant insights and quick wit soon made him a legend.  Due to his immense popularity, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle went back to his most famous character again and again, writing an additional 3 Sherlock Holmes novels and 56 short stories over the next four decades.
