Publisher's Synopsis

The hit BBC series Sherlock has introduced a whole new generation of fans to Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective. In this unique collection, Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have selected their all-time favourite Sherlock Holmes adventures, providing readers a curated masterclass in crime fiction.

Each of the tales in this first of two volumes, from Sherlock's first appearance in A Study in Scarlet to the classic Adventure of The Speckled Band, is a potent mix of murder, suspense, cryptic clues, red herrings, and revenge - a ground-breaking combination of forensic science and bold storytelling. Sherlock Holmes established new rules for what a fictional hero could be, and provided a template for detective stories we still follow today.

With introductions by Steven and Mark for each story, this collection is the perfect introduction to the world of Sherlock Holmes and the ultimate gift for fans of the show it inspired.

The selected stories for volume one:

A Study In Scarlet
The Sign of Four
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
A Case of Identity
The Man with the Twisted Lip
