Sherlock Holmes stories


One of the most revered and respected characters in literary history, we could not contemplate Books about Town without the inclusion of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's maverick investigator. 

"I hear Sherlock everywhere" said Mycroft Holmes in The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter. We will certainly hear a lot about him for 10 weeks this summer.  

Conan Doyle Estate is owned by the Arthur Conan Doyle family and looks after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works and characters, having recently endorsed BBC's Sherlock series, Warner Bros' Sherlock Holmes movies and CBS' Elementary series.
