Shadow Woman is the startling result of a thirty year investigation into the origin of Sherlock Holmes, one of the most compelling and mysterious figures in all literature. Taking advantage of research and analysis tools only recently available, Shadow Woman will leave you with little doubt that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle neither created Sherlock Holmes nor wrote the early adventures. Early suspicions of Arthur's authorship are revealed, and the earlier writings of Mark Twain and Mary Shelley give Arthur away. Doyle's penchant for fabrication and his racist attitudes preclude him as the author of the early Holmes adventures. Time, circumstance, and collusion have kept the reading public unaware of his ghostwriter. In Shadow Woman, you will meet the modest, incredibly brilliant woman who defied Victorian sensibilities and customs to actually create Sherlock Holmes.
