Publisher's Summary

When a postwar search for London lodgings introduces ailing doctor John H. Watson to quirky chemist Sherlock Holmes, their collaboration in the art of observation and deduction begins. Congenial flatmates and even better colleagues, the pair is quickly drawn into a case of murder and revenge that has Scotland Yard at their wits’ end.

With A Study in Scarlet, Arthur Conan Doyle introduces readers to idiosyncratic Sherlock Holmes and his skeptical but loyal sidekick, Dr. Watson. Many retellings and adaptations have followed, but this is the original tale that started the legacy.

Very interesting.

It's a whole different story if your coming from BBC's Sherlock. It's very engaging it for throw me for a bit when a good way through we leave Sherlock in London to follow a completely different story for a few chapters, I had to check 3 times to make sure I was reading the right book. But still fun to read in the end.
