In this rollicking story of high adventure, Arthur Conan Doyle serves as a British spy along with the legendary Doctor Joseph Bell—who became the real-life inspiration for the world’s most famous literary detective, Sherlock Holmes. This diary details how Doyle and Dr. Bell journey to Russia on a secret forensic mission to save Europe from war. Peopled with Doyle’s real-life contemporaries—including Dostoyesky and Rasputin, it is an exciting mix of murder, mystery, literary history, and humour sure to please Sherlock Holmes fans everywhere!
