About the Author

Dave Shephard moved down to the south coast of England to study illustration at Brighton College many years ago. A love of drawing and sea swimming made the town a natural fit. Since then, he’s worked in the wonderfully varied and ever-evolving world of illustration. He specializes in books for teens and younger readers, as well as graphic novels.

Arthur Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930) was a Scottish physician and writer, most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, which are generally considered a major innovation in the field of crime fiction. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.

    Truth be told, I am a hardcore Sherlock Holmes fan and have been so for many years. Shephard blows this adaptation out of the water, capturing the essence of this classic story perfectly. Shephard’s bold-lined, fully-colored, and dark-toned illustrations worked well with the simple story-telling style of Doyle, accenting the thrill of the mystery perfectly. This adaptation closely follows the original, keeping up with the nostalgia of the Holmes saga. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any in search of a good mystery or a warm welcome back to an old favorite in a new format! *Please note I received a free review copy of this book
