"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1986)

First published in 1974, this is a 1986 paperback edition of Nicholas Meyer's bestselling Holmes novel, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution. Over two million copies in print then, and it's still in print today.
