Although many readers think that Arthur Conan Doyle's literary career begins and ends with his creation of master detective Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle dabbled in a variety of genres and styles. The Mystery of Cloomber has elements of the classic detective genre, but it is closer to a nuanced psychological thriller than one of the cut-and-dried cases that Holmes and Watson solved

Who will end up with whom?"--P. [4] of cover
