The Conan Doyle Estate are excited and proud to share this amazing book cover for The Improbable Tales of Baskerville Hall, Book One - released on the 12th of September 2023. Currently in development for TV with Imagine Entertainment.

Before there was a man named Sherlock, there was a boy called Arthur…

When young Arthur Conan Doyle is offered a spot at Baskerville Hall, a school for gifted children, he is elated at being given a chance to prove himself. There, Arthur makes friends with Irene Eagle, a girl who boldly strides into action, and Jimmie Moriarty, a boy whose brilliance rivals Arthur’s own. Together, they discover that their new school is a peculiar place, home to remarkable creatures and unexplained explosions.

 When the trio are invited into a powerful secret society called the Clover, they must pass three challenging tests to be accepted. But along the way, Arthur uncovers a mystery that will lead to grand adventure . . . and even greater danger.
