The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes

'“Sherlock Holmes means different things to different people: to die-hard readers, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original (who cracked his first case in 1887); to older filmgoers, Basil Rathbone and Peter Cushing; to children of the 1970s and pretty much no one else, Nicol Williamson and Robert Stephens; and to younger fans, Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch. All of them turn up in The Great Detective, in which Zach Dundas traces Sherlock’s evergreen celebrity.” —Vanity Fair  '
