Introduction by Anne Perry
Includes newly commissioned endnotes
 
In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, creating an international icon in the quick-witted sleuth Sherlock Holmes. In this very 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 Watson’s, and the world’s, fascination with this enigmatic character. In A Study in Scarlet, 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 word Rache is written upon the wall, the other a kidnapping set in the American West. Picking up the “scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life,” Holmes demonstrates his uncanny knack for finding the truth, tapping into powers of deduction that still captivate readers today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Brilliant Beginning Perhaps the twist is obvious but you never manage to figure it all out until the very end and that is the sign of a brilliant detective novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The book that started it all! Everyone needs an individual copy of a Study in Scarlet. Even with the complete editions that are very popular, having the first book on it's own is wonderful. The story itself is thrilling regardless of how many times it is read which makes it a timeless classic. #plumreview
