This is the first novel for Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Published in Beeton's Christmus Annual in 1887, in this novel, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the legendary and probably the most beloved and greatest fictional detective of all time, who took forth his undisputed reputation forwards through 4 novels and 56 short stories over 40 years till the last book of Sherlock Holmes' stories 'The case book of Sherlock Holmes' was published in 1927. Doyle's incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse drawn cabs, fogs and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street. The novel has two parts. In the first part, Mr. Sherlock Holmes unspools a mystery around a murder committed in a forlorn house near Brixton Road in London, while his chronicler Dr. Watson astutely observes how his process of observations and deductions, laid together, makes a whole chain complete, unravelling it's every knot of complexity. The second part of the novel has been partly narrated in 3rd person and partly taken from Dr. Watson's recordings. This part discloses the perpetrator's long poignant past singed with love, jealousy, betrayal and animosity.--Submitted by Kris Das.
