Summary: When literary researcher Harold White is inducted into the preeminent Sherlock Holmes enthusiast society, The Baker Street Irregulars, he expects good sherry and stimulating conversation. He receives a bonus: the world's leading expert on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle announces that he's found the author's fabled "missing diary." But when the man is found murdered in his hotel room - it is Harold who must take up the search:both for the killer, and for the invaluable missing diary. With only his immense knowledge of the Doylean canon-and the help of a beautiful young journalist-Harold embarks on a dangerous translatlantic investigation, making deductions worthy of his literary idol. At the same time, author Graham Moore tells the story of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself, a story which his remained hidden in Conan Doyle's missing diary for a hundred years. In an attempt to prove himself the better of his most famous character, Conan Doyle hunts a serial killer through the streets of 1890's London. But what he finds is that in a world of real crime, and real evil, the world does not need Arthur Conan Doyle - the world needs Sherlock Holmes.
