British author Conan Doyle created the imaginary private detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is outstanding at observation, deduction, forensic science, and logical reasoning. His skills are remarkably acute, which he employs when investigating cases for many clients.
Many authors have since written stories and full-length novels adding to the literature. These ten short stories by two Sherlockian authors are a stunning contribution.
Though not the original fictional detective, Holmes may well be the best known. Guinness World Records lists him as the most portrayed literary human character in film and television history. Many believe Holmes to be a real individual; numerous literary and fan societies have been founded on this idea. The personality and stories have had a profound and lasting effect on crime writing and popular culture.
