About the Author:

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) introduced Sherlock Holmes in his first novel A Study in Scarlet. In 1893 Conan Doyle published "The Final Problem" in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more towards historical fiction. However Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of "The Final Problem," but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all. Ruth Rendell is an award-winning author whose titles include 13 Steps Down and The Water's Lovely.

Review:

"Arthur Conan Doyle is unique in simultaneously bringing the curtain down on an era and raising one on another, ushering in a genre of writing that, while imitated and expanded, has never been surpassed" -- Stephen Fry "I first encountered him through an eccentric maths teacher who would read 'The Speckled Band' and other Conan Doyle adventures to us instead of teaching fractions. He also used to balance chairs on his chin, but that's another story. I'm still fond of Holmes to this day, especially now that I can see him as the crazed, controlling junkie that he clearly was" -- Mark Billingham "Conan Doyle triumphed and triumphed deservedly, because he took his art seriously, because he lavished a hundred little touches of real knowledge and genuine picturesqueness on the police novelette" -- G.K. Chesterton "A wonderful Sherlock Holmes story from its sparkling first pages, through its vivid painting of darkest Dartmoor, its undertones of fear of the mind's depths, and on to the triumph of the rational" The Times
