About the Book

Travel the streets of London with legendary detective Sherlock Holmes and his new friend Dr. Watson as they work to solve a murder whose only clues are a wedding ring, a gold watch, a pocket edition of The Decameron and a word scrawled in blood on the wall.

Quotes from the Book

"In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backward.... There are few people who, if you told them a result, would be able to evolve from their own inner consciousness what the steps were which led up to that result."

"There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."
