In 1901, Arthur Conan Doyle 'resurrected' Holmes for what turned-out to be his most popular story, The Hound of the Baskervilles. It first appeared as nine episodes in the British edition of The Strand Magazine. The first episode was accompanied by a brief footnote that acknowledged the assistance provided by a young journalist called Bertram Fletcher Robinson. Almost immediately, there was speculation about the extent of Fletcher Robinson's contribution to the narrative of the story. Fletcher Robinson's early death did little to end such speculation. This book explores the life and work of Fletcher Robinson and it also examines the extent of his involvement with The Hound of the Baskervilles.
