About the Book

In the short story/novelette A Double Barreled Detective Story by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), Sherlock Holmes finds himself in the American West.
There are two retribution arcs in the tale. A wealthy young woman experiences abuse, humiliation, and abandonment from her new husband in the main plot. When the child is older, the mother finds out that he has a bloodhound-like extraordinary sense of smell. In order to ruin the reputation of the kid's biological father, the mother urges the youngster to locate him.
In it, Archy Stillman utilizes his sense of smell to solve a murder that might have been prevented if Archy and Sherlock Holmes had followed a rational plan.
This is a spoof on mystery novels by Mark Twain. In the second arc, Sherlock Holmes is shown as using implausible amounts of "scientific procedures" yet still coming to the incorrect conclusion. The "4th wall" was broken by Sam Clemens/Mark Twain, who then emerged as himself at the story's midpoint.
