Tim Pigott-Smith's six best books

Tim Pigott-Smith is best known in the UK for roles in the television dramas The Jewel In The Crown, The Chief and The Vice. He also writes The Baker Street Mysteries children’s books.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One entry on the list:
The Sign of Four
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I have always been a Sherlock Holmes fanatic. I’d devour the stories as a child and I’ve even written books about the street kids who help him solve crimes, a mark of my obsession. This novel about a jewel theft is phenomenally exciting with a fantastic climax. Holmes is the ultimate crime-solver.
