The centennial of the first Sherlock Holmes story, "A Study in Scarlet," has occasioned numerous publications, including this pleasing compendium. Hardwick's expertise is long established; here he supersedes his own Sherlock Holmes Companion and other books to present a determinedly nonscholarly and thoroughly entertaining one - volume survey of Holmes and his creator. Hardwick alternates the life and times of Arthur Conan Doyle with the publication history of Holmes, summarizing the stories' plots faithfully without giving away too much. Fans will delight in the "Who's Who of Characters," the index of quotations, and the reproductions of original illustrations. A treat for all Sherlockians. Starr E. Smith, Georgetown Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
