The hit BBC series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, offers a fresh, contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective. The debut episode took as its inspiration the very first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet - and this edition of Conan Doyle's novel will allow Sherlock fans to discover, or re-discover, the power of that classic story.

A Study in Scarlet is the genre-defining work with which popular crime fiction was born. A potent mix of serial murder, suspense, cryptic clues, red herrings and revenge, the novel introduces us to the world-famous characters of Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson and Inspector Lestrade and sees Sherlock and Dr Watson meet and join forces for the first time as they track a mysterious killer that stalks London's streets.

In addition to the original text, this edition also has an introduction by Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat, who explains how it inspired the Sherlock script.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A timeless classic Sherlock Holmes is one of my favourite childhood heroes- I loved hearing about his adventures as a really small child and reading the books as an adult really makes me happy :) The literature is untouched and classic- truly one of my favourite books and authors of all time. And to the cover- well, who doesn't like BBC's Sherlock? :) 3 Can't wait to pick up the rest of the novels.
