A Biography of Arthur Conan Doyle
This is a detailed and extensively researched biography which offers for the first time the true source of Sherlock Holmes' cocaine habit and presents to a new generation of readers a modern day interpretation of the life of this paradoxical and highly versatile author, the father of detective fiction.
Covering every aspect of Doyle's life with great thoroughness, Martin Booth picks his way through the ripping yarn judiciously avoiding the hagiographic tone of so many of Doyle's biographers and keeping the textual analysis to a refreshing minimum.
Contains black and white photographs.
