Über diesen Titel


Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Copy is not price-clipped.; 360 pages; Physical description. : 360 p. ; 24 cm. Subject: Doyle, Arthur Conan, Sir, 1859-1930 - Fiction. Bell, Joseph, 1837-1911 - Fiction. Doyle, Arthur Conan, 1859-1930 - Fiction. Private investigators - Scotland - Edinburgh - Fiction. Series: The dark beginnings of Sherlock Holmes ; 2.


Arthur Conan Doyle is the narrator of this excellent crime novel which blends fact with fiction and opens in the late 1870s with the young Doyle studying medicine at Edinburgh University. His mentor is the famous Dr Joseph Bell, who Pirie makes a Sherlock Holmes character, and his adversary against whom he is pitted in two rousing adventures is a prototype Moriarty. It would be unfair to give the game away but Doyle and Bell find themselves alone on the track of a crazed serial killer who strikes first in Edinburgh and then in London. This evocative, superbly crafted mystery thriller paints a striking picture of Victorian mores and the tight and imaginative plot is excitingly developed in a strong narrative that demands (and deserves) to be devoured at a single sitting.
