A Study in Scarlet is an 1887 detective novel by Scottish author Arthur Conan Doyle. Written in 1886, the story marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, who would become the most famous detective duo in popular fiction. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes, a consulting detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet" "There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

Introduction by Anne Perry Includes newly commissioned endnotes In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, creating an international icon in the quick-witted sleuth Sherlock Holmes. In this very first Holmes mystery, the detective introduces himself to Dr. John H. Watson with the puzzling line “You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive,” and so begins Watson’s, and the world’s, fascination with this enigmatic character. In A Study in Scarlet, Doyle presents two equally perplexing mysteries for Holmes to solve: one a murder that takes place in the shadowy outskirts of London, in a locked room where the haunting word Rache is written upon the wall, the other a kidnapping set in the American West. Picking up the “scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life,” Holmes demonstrates his uncanny knack for finding the truth, tapping into powers of deduction that still captivate readers today.
"Elementary, my dear Watson." A phrase synonymous with the famous unconventional detective Sherlock Holmes. The story begins when Holmes and Watson first meet and form a working relationship. This story is separated between the present day of solving the murder and the past circumstances that caused someone to commit murder. Who did commit murder? Who solves it first, the policy or Sherlock Holmes?Arthur Conan Doyle was a prolific writer and physician. In regards to the Sherlock Holmes character, Doyle wrote four novels including the Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Valley of Fear. Doyle also wrote 56 short stories about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Doyle did not know he created a cult community and wanted to kill Holmes off so he could devote more time to his other writings. Doyle did kill Sherlock Holmes, but due to public outrage; Doyle brought Holmes back to life and continued to solve mysteries.
