A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

Perhaps Sherlock Holmes could explain why this is the first ofΒ Dr. Watson’s writings I’ve ever read.Β This is the novel that introduces Holmes and Watson. The doctor wants to share a flat. The detective solves two murders. But I sure didn’t expect several chaptersΒ about Mormons in America’s Wild West. Next up: The Sign of (the) Four.
