    ITEM#: 14046187

    SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE was born in Edinburgh in 1859. He trained as a doctor at Edinburgh University and it was during this time that he witnessed methods of diagnosis that would later inspire Sherlock Holmes' astonishing methods of deduction.A Study in Scarlet was Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel, published in 1887, but it wasThe Sign of Four, published in 1890, that catapulted him to worldwide fame. From 1891 he wrote short stories about the immortal detective forThe Strand magazine. He attempted to kill off Sherlock Holmes in 1893, in The Final Problem, but was forced to revive him after thousands of complaints. Conan Doyle died in 1930 having written two more Sherlock Holmes novels,The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear, both serialized inThe Strand, and a total of 56 short stories. Not only the master of popular crime fiction, he also wrote the best-selling science fiction novel,The Lost World from the Professor Challenger series.
    A tie-in edition of Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel, with an introduction by Sherlock creator Steven Moffat.

    The hit BBC series Sherlock 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 pilot episode took as its inspiration the very first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet -- and this new 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 Sherlockco-creator Steven Moffat, who tells how it inspired the script for his episode.
