“I like the way your mind works,” said Doyle. “We should work on something together. Pool our resources. What do you say?” I said I would like that very much… Young journalist Bertram Fletcher Robinson can barely believe his luck when he meets his hero, Arthur Conan Doyle, on a troop ship coming back from South Africa. Better yet, the creator of Sherlock Holmes suggests they collaborate on a “real creeper” of a story—a plan that throws them into one of the most dramatic and harrowing adventures of their lives.The two travel to Dartmoor, England, cementing their friendship as they start work on what will become one of the world’s most famous novels, The Hound of the Baskervilles. But the experience proves traumatic for both of them, and when the book—anticipated to be Sherlock’s comeback vehicle — is finally published, it is credited to one author alone. Based on real events, Baskerville is a creeper too: a thrilling exploration of friendship and rivalry, love and lust, ambition and the limits of talent. It takes us from the clattering heart of Edwardian London to the eerie stillness of ancient West Country moors, where a treacherous bog might swallow a man in seconds…John O’Connell worked as books editor for Time Out for several years. He now writes, mostly about books, for The Times, The Guardian, New Statesman and The National. He is also the author of I Told You I Was Ill: Adventures in Hypochondria and The Midlife Manual. 1.

Volume two in this series consists of one novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and two collections of short stories, which include "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (a total of 23 stories). These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous. They are reproduced here (and in all volumes) in the order in which they were first published. First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques. Doyle ended up writing four novels and 56 short stories featuring Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson. All but four are told in the first person by Watson, two by Holmes, and two are written in the third person. Together, this series of beautifully written Victorian literature has sold more copies than any other books in the English language, with the exceptions of the Bible and Shakespeare. 1.

Is your tuition paid up? College finals are killers – or maybe it's just the people who count the money. A retired Irish cop and a fast-food loving Irish wolfhound search for the campus murderer while dealing with a scooter-riding senior with dreams of trenchcoat adventures, a crazed exterminator looking for his ride, and a makeup artist whose mid-life crisis isn't any the less stressful because her clients never complain. A half-million dollars has vanished and a college comptroller is dead. Mackenzie Sullivan, recently retired DC cop and newly-minted private detective, really has no interest in the murder. Mac just needs to find the embezzled money for the university's insurance company. Finding the killer is a bonus that he's not sure he wants to earn.
