A tired and battle scarred surgeon returns to London after being wounded in the third Afghan war. After his money starts to run low, a chance encounter leads him to take a flat with an eccentric man at 221B Baker Street. Thus begins the famous crime-solving partnership of the Holmes and Watson duo.

When a body turns up in an abandoned building, Scotland Yard is baffled, and calls in the world's first 'consulting detective , Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Through observation, subterfuge, and tenacity, he is soon able to discover the identity of the assassin, but that is only the beginning of the bizarre mystery.

    " I read this after having watched BBC's Sherlock: A Study in Pink. I absolutely loved the book and became more impressed with the show. Sherlock (the show) included some funny things that I would not have got had I not read the book. ...SPOILERS...For example: In the book RACHE, german for revenge, is written on the wall in the book. Whereas in the show Anderson sees that the dead woman scratched "RACHE" on the floor and suggests that the case has something to do with revenge. Here Sherlock replies something of the sort: "Shut up Anderson, it obviously mean Rachel." (which of course, it turns out it does.) Anyway, I absolutely loved A Study in Scarlet and all the other Sherlock Holmes stories! :) "

    " Inspired by the show to read the books, and I love them equally. I could have done without the long details of the Mormons/wildernessbut it didn't take awayfrom the rest of it! "
