Review quote

For many of us it will quickly become an essential part of our reference libraries - Sherlock Holmes Society of London There can be little doubt that this book from Brian Pugh is one of the most important books on Conan Doyle. It is a truly indispensable guide for the researcher and has already aided me in my present researches. Where there are areas of disagreement ,especially regarding dates, all views and sources are shown. This is one of the book's strongest points. Brian does not seek to impose his personal opinion on the reader by choosing one source over another. To sum up. If you need a volume in which you can easily look up a period in Conan Doyle s life you can do no better than to buy this book. - Alistair Duncan [winner 2011 Howlett Award for The Norwood Author]
