Sherlock Holmes FAQ

Cover: 'Sherlock Holmes FAQ'

Staff Review: "Sherlock Holmes FAQ" by Dave Thompson

★★★★

Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is probably the most widely-known and beloved character in English literature. His adventures, as chronicled in four novels and 56 short stories, have enthralled millions of people over the decades. Holmes and his faithful companion, Dr. Watson, have also been portrayed in dozens of plays, radio programs and films by the likes of Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett and Benedict Cumberbatch. SHERLOCK HOLMES FAQ is a one-stop shopping guide to all things Holmes, detailing the back-story of all written stories and filmed/spoken adventures interwoven with a biography of Conan Doyle. It's a lively, opinionated and entertaining tribute to the 'Great Detective.'
