A study in scarlet is the introductory novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle which primarily brings up his most celebrated literary character, Sherlock Holmes along with his comrade Dr. Watson with much delight to the readers around the world for whom the word spying became tantamount to Sherlock Holmes.
I am a self confessed Holmes fan evident from the fact that my first book at a very young age was the Complete works of Arthur Conan Doyle, the copy of which I still have as a prized possession.
The plot is simple, a murder mystery and how it is to be solved. What is fascinating rather is the impeccable description of characters as well as the situations as the story unfolds.
Some literary works should be the constant companions of readers and Sherlock Holmes is one of the best literary buddy one could ask for.
It’s a *****5 stars for me.
