    Famed for his Sherlock Holmes stories, Arthur Conan Doyle fretted that his creation had overshadowed his more 'serious' literary efforts. He was also a prolific letter writer, and this biography -the first to be based on unrestricted access to his correspondence - offers a sympathetic and rounded portrait of the writer and the man, from his difficult childhood in Edinburgh to the later obsession with spiritualism that baffled and frustrated his friends and fans alike.
