Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. After being educated in England and Austria, Doyle studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh Medical School, and also practical botany at Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden. He worked as a ship's doctor and surgeon, and then set up his own medical practice in Portsmouth in 1882. His practice proved unsuccessful, and, having had several pieces of writing published (including academic articles and a short story), he focussed on writing fiction even though his difficulty in finding a publisher led him to continue his work, study, and writings in medicine. A Study in Scarlet, the first work featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, was published in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887. Its sequel, The Sign of the Four, appeared in Lippincott's Magazine in 1890, and short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes were published in the Strand Magazine (in 1891, A Scandal in Bohemia introduced him to a wide audience). Made a Knight Bachelor by King Edward VII in 1902, Doyle was also appointed Knight of Grace of the Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem in 1903. While he wrote on a broad range of topics, his other most popular works include Holmes novels The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902) and The Valley of Fear (1915), and science fiction and fantasy novels The Lost World (1912), The Poison Belt (1913), and The Land of Mist (1926) featuring Professor Challenger. Doyle died of a heart attack at his house in Crowborough, East Sussex, in 1930.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) is known the world over as the creator of the famous consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. But Conan Doyle was a prolific writer who produced a large body of work ranging from non-fiction and full-length novels to a wide-ranging collection of short stories. Doyle's first major success as a writer came with the debut of Sherlock Holmes in the 1887 publication of "A Study in Scarlet". Holmes was a popular sensation, and more stories followed. By 1891, Sherlock Holmes was enough to provide Doyle a living, but Doyle came to resent Holmes, who kept him from what he considered "more important" work. In 1893 he "killed" Holmes, as the detective and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunged to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls in "The Final Problem". It was no mere publicity stunt. Doyle considered himself finished with Mr. Sherlock Holmes. The public uproar in reaction to Holmes' "death" shocked Doyle, with even his own mother complaining, and as the clamor continued he was forced to bring the detective back in "The Hound of the Baskervilles", published, to vast public sigh of relief, in 1901. Ironically, the character Doyle resented as a "distraction" from serious work would ultimately appear in fifty-six short stories and four novels, together with countless adaptations to films, television, cartoons, and modern pastiches by an assortment of authors. In fact, the "world's first consulting detective" is widely regarded, along with Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan, as the best-known fictional characters in the world.

In The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, the consulting detective's notoriety as the arch-despoiler of the schemes concocted by the criminal underworld at last gets the better of him. Though Holmes and his faithful sidekick Dr Watson solve what will become some of their most bizarre and extraordinary cases - the disappearance of the race horse Silver Blaze, the horrific circumstances of the Greek Interpreter and the curious mystery of the Musgrave Ritual among them - a criminal mastermind is plotting the downfall of the great detective. Half-devil, half-genius, Professor Moriarty leads Holmes and Watson on a grisly cat-and-mouse chase through London and across Europe, culminating in a frightful struggle which will turn the legendary Reichenbach Falls into a water double-grave.
