For the first time in its 125-year history, the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate has authorized a new Sherlock Holmes novel: London, 1890. 221B Baker Street. A fine art dealer named Edmund Carstairs visits Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson to beg for their help. He is being menaced by a strange man in a flat cap - a wanted criminal who seems to have followed him all the way from America. In the days that follow, his home is robbed, his family is threatened.
And then the first murder takes place.

Richard Brandt charts Bezos’s rise from computer nerd to world-changing entrepreneur. His success can be credited to his forward-looking insights and ruthless business sense.
