Summary of the Book
221 B Baker Street. When Dr. James Watson agreed to meet the tenant in order to come to some cohabitation agreement, he had already been warned that the man was eccentric. However, the word eccentric falls short in describing the experience that is Sherlock Holmes. A self-professed private detective, Sherlock Holmes, is often visited by clients who seek his help in strange cases of all kinds. However, Sherlock doesn’t take any case he gets. No, this nicotine addict gets his kicks from only the most nerve-rankling of cases, ones that often involve murder or crimes most macabre. He asks Watson to join him as he unravels the threads behind these cases using his unique “science of deduction”. In the process, Watson begins to understand that there might not be any mystery that Sherlock Holmes cannot solve.
