There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it
After a harrowing tour in Afghanistan, Dr. Watson returns to London to convalesce at 221B Baker Street, home to the enigmatic Sherlock Holmes. Their lives are irrevocably thrown together by news that a man has been found dead in a grimy ‘ill-omened’ house, with the word rache – German for revenge – written in blood on the wall. This grisly discovery is complicated further by the look of utter horror on the victim’s face, and the complete absence of any wounds on the body or sign of a struggle.
First published in 1887, A Study in Scarlet is the remarkable first-outing of one of literature’s most famous partnerships.
In this Macmillan Collector's Library edition, Sherlock scholar David Stuart Davies provides both an illuminating afterword and a fascinating chronology of the Sherlock Holmes stories.
Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
In the riveting tales collected in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the sleuth of 221B Baker Street and his steadfast companion, Watson, set out on the dark, foggy streets of late Victorian London to solve England’s darkest mysteries and unearth its most closely guarded secrets.
