Take a bright detective, a series of twisted and unexpected mysteries, a proper second in command and maybe a blanket with a cup of tea by a cosy fire in a remote place. (A beach towel and the sea in sight could also do). But this would be a regular introduction to a book which is a genre in itself. 
Therefore, since there are few characters whose wisdom we trust so deeply as to let them speak for themselves in the presentation of a new book and since Sherlock Holmes is one of them and a master of the sharp reasoning and the witty reply, we thought that he is by far the best suited to present himself and pledge the cause of his own adventures. Let’s listen to him, we might find a clue or two!
"My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people do not know."
"There is nothing like first-hand evidence."
"There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact."
"I cannot live without brain-work. What else is there to live for?"
"Which is it today,' I asked, 'morphine or cocaine?"
"I never guess. It is a shocking habit,—destructive to the logical faculty."
Oh, well…
"You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear."
"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
Is there any need to say more about the grandest detective in the history of literature (Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple & co., we beg to be pardoned, thank you very much)? We believe not. 
In conclusion:
"The game is afoot."
So is the reading. And the fun will follow. It’s elementary, my dear Watson! Enjoy!
