 Europe, Scotland, Edinburgh
Genre: Mystery
Time Frame: 1800s
Published: 2003
Description: "Ranks with the best of the Doyle canon."—Times Literary Supplement

As a young medical student, Arthur Conan Doyle—the creator of Sherlock Holmes—studied under the pioneering forensic investigator Dr. Joseph Bell. Critically acclaimed author David Pirie has created an engrossing series of novels that pairs the two as partners in criminal investigations in the dark underworlds of Victorian England.

The Night Calls chronicles a most frightening and disturbing case: their encounter with the man who prefigures Holmes's arch-nemesis Moriarty. This literary tour de force takes Doyle and Bell from the heart of old Edinburgh to the depths of London's most violent streets, where they confront this villainous reprobate who is as brilliant as he is merciless.
