A Study in Scarlet (Modern Library Classics) by Arthur Conan Doyle

In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle publishedA 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 Watsons, and the worlds, 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 wordRacheis 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 truthand making literary history. From the Trade Paperback edition.
