'He's an intelligent man. He was once rich and is now poor. His wife loved him once, but she doesn't love him now. And he's thirty or forty years old.'

In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, thus creating an international icon in the quick-witted sleuth Sherlock Holmes. In this, the first Holmes mystery, the detective introduces himself to Dr. John H. Watson with the puzzling line “You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive.” And so begins Watson’s, and the world’s, fascination with this enigmatic character.

Doyle presents two equally perplexing mysteries for Holmes to solve: one a murder that takes place in the shadowy outskirts of London, in a locked room where the haunting word Rache is written upon the wall, the other a kidnapping set in the American West. Quickly picking up the “scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life,” Holmes does not fail at finding the truth—and making literary history....

Having killed off Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle began a new series of tales on a very different theme. Brigadier Gerard is an officer in Napoleon’s army — recklessly brave, engagingly openhearted, and unshakable, if not a little absurd, in his devotion to the enigmatic Emperor. The Brigadier’s wonderful comic adventures, long established in the affections of Conan Doyle’s admirers as second only to those of the incomparable Holmes, are sure to find new devotees among the ardent fans of such writers as Patrick O’Brian and George MacDonald Fraser. "Brigadier Gerard is, after Holmes and Watson, Conan Doyle's most successful literary creation." -- Julian Symons...

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859-1930) était un écrivain écossais, célèbre pour ses romans mettant en scène le détective Sherlock Holmes, considérés comme une innovation majeure du roman policier. Cet écrivain prolifique a également travaillé dans le domaine de la science-fiction, des romans historiques, des pièces de théâtre et de la poésie. Arthur Conan Doyle est né à Edimbourg (Ecosse). Il étudie la médecine de 1876 à 1881 après être sorti agnostique des écoles catholiques de son enfance. Ses premiers écrits, encore exempts de son célèbre personnage Sherlock Holmes, sont publiés en 1879, peu après qu’il a arrêté d’exercer son activité de médecin, et c’est en 1887 qu’apparaissent sur la scène littéraire britannique le mondialement connu détective londonien et son ami et assistant le docteur Watson. L’engagement politique de Conan Doyle, notamment en faveur de la guerre en Afrique du Sud, ainsi que son titanesque travail littéraire (plus de cinquante livres et un nombre impressionnant de nouvelles), lui valent d’être proclamé chevalier en 1902: il devient alors “Sir” Arthur Conan Doyle....
