A STUDY IN SCARLET was the first story by Arthur Conan Doyle to feature Sherlock Holmes. It begins with Dr. John Watson, an injured Afghan war veteran, searching for someone to share lodgings with in 1881 London. He soon meets the enigmatic young Sherlock Holmes, who ushers him into a world of mystery and murder, and of cases too confounding for anyone but this uniquely gifted consulting detective to solve. Two killings in London have Scotland Yard perplexed, and the solution Holmes reveals takes the reader on a journey to America�s Wild West of the 1850s and beyond.
