Whether on page or screen, Sherlock Holmes continues to fascinate. Our author of A Study in Crimson, Robert J. Harris, has written about the enduring appeal of Sherlock Holmes for Amazon US, and has recommended his favourite novels based on the famous detective. A Study in Crimson has also been selected by Amazon US as one of their Best Mysteries and Thrillers of the Month!

A Study in Crimson is inspired by the classic film series from Universal Pictures starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, which updated Sherlock Holmes to the 1940s. Baffled by a serial killer nicknamed “Crimson Jack” who uses the wartime blackout to prey on women and recreate the grisly murders of Jack the Ripper, Scotland Yard appeals to the world’s greatest detective for assistance. And of course, Dr. Watson is on hand to help, too.
