Written in 1887, A Study in Scarlet is a detective novel that marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, who would later become the most famous detective duo in popular fiction. This story is narrated from Dr. Watson’s perspective as he returns to London after being shot and contracting a horrendous illness while serving as a doctor in Afghanistan. Too weak to work, he needs to find a roommate and is introduced to an enigmatic man: private detective Sherlock Holmes. When a body is found in unusual circumstances and Scotland Yard’s officers are inefficient, Holmes is called to help solve the crime, and he invites Dr. Watson to join him. Together they unravel a tangled thread of murders that extend back thirty years.
“The Sign of the Four” (1890), is the second novel featuring Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle wrote four novels and 56 stories starring the fictional detective. The story is set in 1888. “The Sign of the Four” has a complex plot involving service in East India Company, India, the Indian Rebellion of 1857, a stolen treasure, and a secret pact among four convicts (“the Four” of the title) and two corrupt prison guards… and of course, Sherlock Holmes.
