With a legacy that is unparalleled in the crime fiction genre, Sherlock Holmes™ is the most famous and most influential detective in literature. Created by Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle and first appearing in 1887, Sherlock Holmes still remains wildly popular even 160 years after the birth of Conan Doyle. Not just a man of letters, he was also a man of medicine but he felt that his true calling was writing.

The success of Sherlock Holmes meant fame swiftly reached Conan Doyle and 60 stories later, including four novels, Conan Doyle’s life and the world of literature was never the same again.
