A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle’s first ‘Sherlock Homes’ novel introduces the talented detective Holmes to his loyal partner in investigation, Dr. John Watson. The novel begins with a war-wounded Watson being introduced to Holmes by a common friend, when looking for a place to stay. Initially wary of Holmes’s eccentricities, Watson gradually starts appreciating Sherlock’s knowledge and exceptional abilities of logical deduction. Watson accompanies his new flat mate to a crime scene when police agencies enlist Sherlock’s help in solving the murders of one Enoch Drebber and later his secretary Joseph Stangerson. Using his brilliant skills, Sherlock immediately deduces the physicality of the murderer. The novel establishes many peculiarities and the working styles of Sherlock and Watson, repeated in nearly all future Sherlock novels and stories.
