Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first novel—and the origin story of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson—is reimagined in the first unabridged, fully illustrated version since its debut, by acclaimed and bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly.

The year is 1881. The city, London. A man lies dead in an empty house, not a mark upon him, and no clues—save for the word "RACHE" scrawled in blood on the wall above. Elsewhere, two men—a former army doctor called John Watson and a brilliant eccentric called Sherlock Holmes—meet for the first time. These two events set in motion an adventure into the darkest corners of men's hearts as the cold, calculating investigative methods of Mr. Holmes are put to the test in a case that spans decades and continents, rife with danger and intrigue.

Originally published in 1887, A Study in Scarlet was the first novel to feature a character whose name would become synonymous with the art of deduction. Today it is completely reimagined with artwork by the modern master of gothic romanticism, Gris Grimly, bringing this thrilling tale of love and revenge to a new generation of readers.

      This novel is about a man named Sherlock Holmes, he is an amazing detective.My favourite character is Sherlock, because even when he solved the case all by himself and the other cops just steal all of his credits, but he still helps those cops to solve the case and believed that solving the case is more important than taking credits or money. My favourite part of the book is the part that Sherlock Holmes solve the case and explain it to Dr, Watson. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and I think the people that like mystery books would love this book.

        I like this book very much!!! This is the best book I have ever seen!!! I love one of the story in this book that is about a man' lover was kidnaped by the Mormons. And her father was also killed by the Mormons. The man was very angry, many years later, the man revenged! He killed the Mormons. But his behaviour was soon discovered by Sherlock Holmes. I consider that Sherlock Holmes is a genius!!! He use very little clues to solve this case. He is really a smart person!!!
