9780143177777: The Sherlockian

December 1893: Hungry for the latest Sherlock Holmes instalment, Londoners ripped open their Strand magazines only to reel in horror. Holmes’s creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, had killed their hero off. London spiralled into mourning, branding Conan Doyle an assassin, and demanding an explanation. But the cryptic author said nothing.

Eight years later, however, just as abruptly as he had “murdered” Holmes in “The Final Problem,” Conan Doyle brought him back for a new series of adventures. Again, the author said nothing. After his death, the diary that would have shed light on his mysterious reasons went missing. In the decades since, it has never been found. Or has it?

January 2010: When Harold White is inducted into the pre-eminent Sherlock Holmes society, the Baker Street Irregulars, he never imagines he’s about to embark on the hunt for the holy grail of Holmesophiles—the missing diary. But when the world’s leading Doylean scholar turns up dead in his hotel room, it is Harold—using wisdom gleaned from countless detective stories—who must take up the search, both for the diary and for the killer.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2010: The Sherlockian begins with Arthur Conan Doyle pondering the best way to kill off the character that brought him fame, fortune, and the angst of a writer desperate to be remembered for more than "a few morbid yarns." We then skip more than a hundred years into the future, to meet Harold White, a Sherlock Holmes devotee attending an annual celebration of hundreds of Sherlockian societies. When both Conan Doyle and White face grisly murders, Graham Moore's delightful debut novel really takes off, bouncing merrily between these two characters and time periods. Replete with winking cameos and Holmes-worthy twists, The Sherlockian is an inspired historical suspense novel that will captivate Holmes fans and anyone who loves a good twisty, clever mystery. --Daphne Durham
