Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), médecin de formation, publie en 1887 Une étude en rouge, roman dans lequel apparaît Sherlock Holmes, qui va devenir le personnage le plus célèbre de la littérature policière, et sans doute de toute la fiction ; héros de quatre romans et cinquante-six nouvelles jusqu'en 1927, Sherlock Holmes est à la base de toute la littérature policière.

Résumé

Biographical note
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh where he qualified as a doctor, but it was his writing which brought him fame, with the creation of Sherlock Holmes, the first scientific detective. He was also a convert to spiritualism and a social reformer who used his investigative skills to prove the innocence of individuals.

Main description

The Penguin English Library edition

A dense yellow miasma swirls in the streets of London as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson accompany a beautiful young woman to a sinister assignation.

For Mary Marston has received several large pearls - one a year for the last six years - and now a mystery letter telling her she is a wronged woman. If she would seek justice she is to meet her unknown benefactor, bringing with her two companions.

But unbeknownst to them all, others stalk London's fog-enshrouded streets: a one-legged ruffian with revenge on his mind - and his companion, who places no value on human life . . .
