The London of the late nineteenth century was home to both Arthur Conan Doyle and his famous detective – Sherlock Holmes. This book looks at some of the many locations in both central and outer London that have connections to one or both of these famous names. In addition to examining the history this book also looks at some of the theories that have been woven over the years around Holmes and these locations.
“This is a great book for Holmes fans both casual and passionate! It’s a fun and engaging read. And for the mass amount of information that you receive it is a book that is very easy to read! Alistair is a master Sherlockian and this books demonstrate his knowledge and passion for not only Holmes but Conan Doyle and the worlds that these two shared! You will not be disappointed with this read!” – Luke Kuhns
