Ths book is part of The Lost Book project. The Lost Book is an animated web series which you can help write. It follows the adventures of investigative journalist, and BookCrosser, Aileen Adler and her dog Watson as they try to solve the crime of a stolen book.

It's all part of a reading campaign that's celebrating the 150th birthday of Arthur Conan Doyle on 22 May 2009.

The Sign of Four is a Sherlock Holmes novel. Watson (Dr John Watson, not Watson the dog!) falls in love and Holmes finds an investigation interesting enough to drag him away from cocaine - briefly, at least. There's stolen treasure, shocking deaths, and a secret pact. Great fun!

This book was waiting for me, together with its "mate", when I arrived home today.
Thanks for sending it on; I love the cute postcard.
Looking forward to reading it, and passing it on.
Thanks for sharing!

Currently reading it, and once again enjoying it.
I will ask for Silver-Greece's address, and this book (and its mate) will soon be on its way to Greece...
Thanks for sharing!

Sherlock Holmes at its best, I really enjoyed re-reading it!

"While susceptible Watson falls in love, "The Sign of Four" also entices the reader with vivid revelations of Holmes'darker habits, as the two men once again tackle a case of baffling complexity."

As it says on the cover, undoubtedly "the greatest detective of them all".

I have Silver-Greece's address, and this book will soon travel to Greece.

Thanks for sharing!
