The greatest detective who never lived.

Since his first appearance in 1887, Sherlock Holmes continues to entertain and fascinate us. With his deerstalker hat, pipe and magnifying glass, not to mention his incredible powers of observation and deduction, he has has pitted his wits against thieves, spies, murderers and enemies - and out-thought them all. As he explains to his loyal sidekick, Watson, 'When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.' Drawing on 60 stories, the 175 quotes in this little book capture the enduring appeal of Conan Doyle's thrilling adventures.

'My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people do not know.'
Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.

'This fellow may be very clever," I said to myself, 'but he is certainly very conceited.'
Dr Watson on Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet.

'Watson. Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same.'
Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Creeping Man.

'Crime is common. Logic is rare.'
Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.
