Uncovering Sherlock Holmes

If you saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie over the break and really liked it, you might be interested in reading some of the original books. Sure they don't have as many fistfights as the new movie, but the mysteries are often very good. In fact the New York Times recently had a great article comparing the new movie with the original books and some of the other movies.

Here are a couple of titles we own at Miami University Libraries:
