At last the TRUTH about Sherlock Holmes! He is exposed in this shocking unauthorized biography by investigative reporter Austin Mitchelson as a mentally unstable monster, manipulating society, murdering without conscience, blackmailing the weak and vulnerable, perverting the course of justice, and destroying the evidence of his own and other crimes.
