Meet the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote A Study in Scarlet when he was 30. His medical practice at that time was not providing enough income and he turned his hand to fiction to supplement his income. He based his character of Sherlock Holmes on his former professor at the University of Edinburgh, Joseph Bell.

It only downloaded through page 66, then it stops--in the middle of the story!

Yes, in this case you do get what you pay for. I downloaded it twice, and the "text" is all random numbers and symbols.

An excellent mystery with a boat chase that matches no other.

This file was perfectly fine and great to read.

(The sign of four) is even better than (A study in scarlet), like I said before, Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in history, I wish I could have lived at that time in history and been a detective in the mid to late 1800's in either New York or London.

Complete gibberish just ampersands and percentage symbols

The Sign of Four was very entertaining and gave me much more insight into the inner workings of Sherlock and his relationship with Watson. Sherlock had a mind that was so in tune with solving puzzles and meeting challenges of mystery and intrigue. For anyone who loves the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle, I believe you'll enjoy this captivating read.
