    Arthur Conan Doyle(Author) Steven Moffat(Introduction) Mark Gatiss(Introduction)
The hit BBC series Sherlock has introduced a whole new generation of fans to Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective. In this unique collection, Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have selected their all-time favourite Sherlock Holmes adventures, providing readers a curated masterclass in crime fiction.

Each of these nineteen tales, from Sherlock’s first appearance in A Study in Scarlet to the late classic The Dying Detective, is a potent mix of murder, suspense, cryptic clues, red herrings, and revenge – a ground-breaking combination of forensic science and bold storytelling. Sherlock Holmes established new rules for what a fictional hero could be, and provided a template for detective stories we still follow today.

With introductions by Steven and Mark for each story, this beautifully designed collection is the perfect introduction to the world of Sherlock Holmes and the ultimate gift for fans of the show it inspired.

The selected stories:

A Study In Scarlet
The Sign of Four
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
A Case of Identity
The Man with the Twisted Lip
The Blue Carbuncle
The Speckled Band
Silver Blaze
The Yellow Face
The Musgrave Ritual
The Greek Interpreter
The Final Problem
The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Empty House
Charles Augustus Milverton
The Bruce-Partington Plans
The Devil’s Foot
The Dying Detective

The volume is obviously targeted at the many, mostly young fans of the TV show who may have never read Conan Doyle's original texts. It will have fulfilled its purpose admirably if it succeeds in introducing a new generation to one of the world's greatest authors of popular fiction. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
