“I may be on the trail in this matter” [BERY]
There are a number of Sherlock Holmes tours one can take in and around London. But for the true fan, tracking Holmes's steps by foot is incomparable.
Stephen Browning has written On the Trail of Sherlock Holmes to take us on seven separate walks around London and an eighth outside the city. But the book goes far beyond simply being a set of maps and tours.
Listen to hear about Steve's approach to organizing the book, telling stories about Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes, and squeezing every last drop out of the storytelling potential that such a volume affords him.
