Sherlock Holmes is one of fiction's most enduring characters, the epitome of calculation and reason. Yet his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was a bundle of contradictions. The son of an alcoholic father and dominating mother, Doyle rejected the family's Roman Catholicism, and sought salvation in the study of medicine, and a lifelong follower of spiritualism. He was a prolific writer, sportsman, politician, both devoted to his wife and passionate about his beautiful young mistress. This new bio reveals the struggles, and humanity of this great author.
