The world's leading Doylean scholar is found murdered, and only Harold is familiar enough with the Holmes novels to recognise the clues the killer has left. Clues which will lead him not only to a murderer, but also to the mystery of Conan Doyle's missing diary – and a secret that Conan Doyle risked everything to hide...

Review:

"The Holmes Affair is a brilliantly executed must-read for all admirers of historical fiction, Sherlock Holmes and intellectual mysteries. Engrossing, suspenseful and fast-paced, this debut novel manages to be both highly original as well as deeply reverential to its literary sources. It's difficult to find a new spin on Sherlock Holmes, but Graham Moore has pulled it off with flying colors" -- Matthew Pearl "A delight, and you don't need to be a Holmes buff to enjoy it" * Daily Mail * "Clever and intriguing" * Guardian * "A must for fans of the Baker Street sleuth" * Yours *
