I’ve always been intrigued by the numerous references to this infamous character but my interest piqued after watching the feature movie ‘Sherlock Holmes’ (2009) directed by Guy Ritchie, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Though there has been a length of time since watching that movie, I have nevertheless begun reading my first novel about Sherlock Holmes, and it is indeed not a let down.
Just a brief bio:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, born in 1859, was a Scottish physician and writer. Sherlock Holmes first featured in ‘A Study in Scarlet’ around 1887 which appeared in ‘Beeton’s Chrsitmas Annual’ (an English magazine). He has since written a total of 56 short stories and 4 novels.
