5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read, 10 April 2008

This review is from: On the Trail of Arthur Conan Doyle: An Illustrated Devon Tour (Hardcover)
There is no doubt that Andrew Lycett's biography on Conan Doyle combined with the recently published volume of Doyle's letters give a pretty comprehensive view of the life of this fascinating author. Having said that it is also true, as remarked by Roger Johnson, that there is still plenty of room for other titles especially where they focus on specific areas of Doyle's life and associations.

Brian Pugh and Paul Spiring have managed to place a magnifying glass over Doyle and his Devon connections and give us some fascinating information (much of which I was unaware of). I found the sections dealing with how Doyle and Fletcher Robinson constructed The Hound of the Baskervilles to be especially interesting and entertaining.

In short, a well researched and entertaining look at this section of Doyle's life.
