It's Elementary, My Dear

From BookLetters:

"Detective Sherlock Holmes sprang into action on movie screens everywhere on Christmas Day, in a big-budget adventure starring Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock and Jude Law as his trusty assistant, Dr. Watson. But what about the man who brought Sherlock to life and single-handedly created the genre of detective fiction? Learn more about the fascinating life and career of Arthur Conan Doyle in the 2007 biography The Man Who Created Sherlock Holmes: The Life and Times of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Biographer Andrew Lycett unravels the mysteries of Doyle's interest in spiritualism, his friendships with Kipling and Houdini, his eventual disenchantment with the Holmes character and much more."
