Our story opens in London, 1878, as poor Dr. Watson returns from India utterly penniless. On the brink of despair, he makes the acquaintance of one Sherlock Holmes, a singular fellow who happens to be looking for a roommate. The two men set up shop at 221b Baker Street, when one of Scotland Yard’s finest sleuths calls on the talents of Detective Sherlock Holmes for help solving a nasty bit of business: murder. Together, Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes will investigate. Employing a clever frame story, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle transports readers from the atmosphere of Victorian London to 1860s Nevada in something of a western before its time! Fifteen illustrations and twenty-five skethes in ink and watercolor by Vincent Mallié bring the world’s most famous detective to life.
