Description

Through four novels and fifty-six stories, Arthur Conan Doyle led Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson through dramatic adventures that continue to thrill readers today, offering an unmatched combination of skillful plotting, period detail, humour, and distinctive characters. It's all there in The Daily Sherlock Holmes, the perfect bedside companion for fans of the world's only consulting detective. Within these pages readers will find a quotation for every day of the year, drawn from across the Conan Doyle canon. Beloved characters and familiar lines recall favourite stories and scenes, while other passages remind us that Conan Doyle had a way with description and a ready wit. Moriarty and Mycroft, Lestrade and Mrs Hudson; the Hound, the Red-Headed League, the Speckled Band, and the dread Reichenbach Falls - it's all here, anchored, of course, in that unforgettable duo of Holmes and Watson. No book published this year will bring a Holmes fan more pleasure. Come, readers. The game is afoot.
