The Case Book of Sherlock Doyle
Author: Harry Stone
ISBN: 0 86025 439 9
Format: Hardback

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle used Holmes’s methods to investigate real-life mysteries. He examined the murder of Mary Emsley, when George Mullins claimed a reward by accusing a cobbler, but who was then put on trial himself.

George Edalji was jailed for cattle maiming in 1903, but Sir Arthur had him exonerated. When the Irish Crown Jewels were stolen from Dublin Castle Doyle enquired into the matter.

He secuired the eventual release of Oscar Slater, convicted of a Glasgow killing. And he tried to save Norman Thorne, an inadequate Sussex farmer, from the gallows. In each case the person suspected by Doyle of perpetrating the crime is revealed, as well as full background of his investigations. Illustrated.
