"In 1893, young army officer Cecil Hambrough was murdered, unleashing one of the most gripping court cases Victorian Britain had ever known. Even more remarkably, the case brought together two pioneering forensic experts-two men upon whom Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes happened to be based. Their involvement in the Ardlamont mystery reveals how the world's most famous detective came to be."--Page 4 of cover.
