Uncle Bernac: A Memory of the Empire

Sir Arthur Conan DOYLE (1859 - 1930)

Looking for a replacement to Sherlock Holmes after the author had killed him off in 1894, Doyle wrote this murder mystery in the dying years of the 19th century. Set in Napoleon's era, it involves a Frenchman returning to his native land to join the Emperor's ranks. (Summary by Cathy Barratt)
