The author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was a Scottish physician and prolific writer of fiction and nonfiction. He is most well known for his four novels and fifty-six short stories featuring the legendary and eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes was modeled after Doyle's colleague, physician and surgeon Dr. Joseph Bell, who had been known for his acute powers of deductive observation. In his real life, Doyle worked in the name of justice too. He personally investigated two cases of innocent men who had been wrongfully imprisoned and helped to get them exonerated for their "crimes."

Sophia Martineck is an illustrator/artist living in Berlin. In 2010 she received the Art Directors Club Young Guns Award (for visionary artists under 30). In 2009 the notable Hans-Meid-Foundation (for German book illustration) awarded her illustrations for R. L. Stevenson's The Body Snatcher and Carson McCullers' The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter. Sophia has a great storytelling style that draws you into her world. Her style will give Holmes new energy, unlike anything you've seen from the master detective.
