Sherlock Holmes FAQ

The ÊSherlock Holmes FAQÊ is a one-stop guide to over a century's worth of mystery mayhem and most of all deduction. Digging deep inside the manifold worlds of Sherlock Holmes the FAQ is a dramatic and detailed digest of the Baker Street sleuth in all of his many guises as TV and radio star movie phenomenon and of course literary giant. Chapters investigate his predecessors and his successors and discuss the influence that Holmes has had not only on other writers but on real-life police procedures as well. The London that he perambulated in deerstalker and cloak is laid bare plus the life and other fascinations of Holmes' creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are mapped out in all their foggy darkened atmosphere. We meet giant hounds and fearful foes common crooks and misdirected souls. Ghosts appear in these pages and vampires too ä and more puzzles conundrums and mysteries than any mortal detective could ever hope to solve. But Holmes as we shall see was no mere mortal. And ÊSherlock Holmes FAQÊ is the story of his immortality.
