A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Holmes, #1

A Study in Scarlet  (Sherlock Holmes, #1)A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm reading the Sherlock Holmes series again and this, the very beginning, is the right place to start. This is one of the more complex mysteries taking place in both America and England.  Holmes is called to a murder of a man with no visible signs of wounds or a struggle, but with a terrible expression on his face. There is, however, a copious amount of blood present and the killer has written the word, RACHE, in blood on the wall.  This is also our introduction to Detectives Lestrad and Gregson.

Holmes, with the faithful Watson, make a number of observations and within a very short time is on the trail of the killer.  When a second victim turns  up, he is sure, but the reader has to follow the beginnings of the story in the Mormon culture in Salt Lake City, UT.
