Mr. Doyle and Dr. Bell

Mr. Doyle and Dr. Bell (Victorian Mysteries (Overlook)) - Howard Engel This book explores the relationship between Arthur Conan Doyle and his mentor at University of Edinburgh, Dr Joseph Bell. Bell is notably an inspiration for ACD in his creation of the character of Sherlock Holmes.

In this book, Bell, with Doyle playing his eager Watson-esque assistant, attempts to prove the innocence of a condemned man and ends up sideways with the Scottish police and the Scottish justice system. The case is based on a true story that occurred some years after the times of ACD and Dr Bell.
