Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the most famous detective duo in literature, appear for the first time in this novel in which Watson shares rooms with his new acquaintance while convalescing from his wartime experiences in Afghanistan.  But their quiet life is disturbed by the discovery of a murder victim in an “ill-omened” house in southeast London.  Holmes provides the book’s title when he says,  “There’s a scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it and isolate it and expose every inch of it.”
