The Man Who Would Be Sherlock

The Real-Life Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle

Christopher Sandford

Arthur Conan Doyle shared his fictional detective’s desire to use deduction to bring justice to an unjust world. This book traces his fascination with crime back to the case of his French teacher, who was later hanged for murdering his wife, and tells how Doyle brought his deductive powers to bear on behalf of George Edalji, an Indian doctor convicted for mutilating livestock, and the alleged murderer Oscar Slater.
