"Sherlock show cocreator Steven Moffat provides an introduction to this first in a set of Sherlock Holmes reissues that tie in with the television series

The hit series Sherlock offers a fresh, contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective. The pilot episode took as its inspiration the very first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, and this new edition will allow Sherlock fans to discover, or rediscover, the power of that classic story. This is the genre-defining work with which popular crime fiction was born. A potent mix of serial murder, suspense, cryptic clues, red herrings, and revenge, the novel introduces us to the world-famous characters of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Inspector Lestrade and sees Sherlock and Dr. Watson meet and join forces for the first time as they track a mysterious killer that stalks London's streets. In addition to the original text, this edition also has an introduction by Steven Moffat, who tells how it inspired the script for his episode."
