The Author of this book is Virginia Evans – Jenny Dooley

The book is about a famous detective Sherlock Holmes. The story was for Helen’s sister Julia that died two years ago just before her wedding. Helen had a stepfather Dr Roylott he was a doctor who had lots of money but he lost his job and now he hasnt any money.
