Plot Summary
A Study In Scarlet is the first novel in the Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  It introduces us the world's greatest and most enduring detective.  Sherlock Holmes is a consulting detective with a capacity to solve the most perplexing of crimes.  In A Study In Scarlet Sherlock Holmes is called to the scene of an unexplained death in London.  It doesn't seem like a murder until Sherlock is able to use his keen powers of observation.  What he discovers is a plot to kill that started a long time ago with a feud.

My Review
Of course this book deserves 5 stars.  Although Sherlock wasn't the first fictional detective he was probably by far the most popular and has continues to be so.  Surprisingly at the time this book didn't do very well.  It was the serialisation that catapulted Holmes and Conan-Doyle to world fame.  But is for its impact on crime fiction that it deserves full credit.  Without Holmes crime fiction would probably not be where it is today.

And not only this, no-one has since come close to writing anything like as captivating and intriguing as Sherlock.

Obviously the book is quite literary in writing style, owing to the time it was written in but that seemingly has not dented Sherlock's appeal and he continues to be one of the most adapted detectives ever.
