Sherlock: The Casebook coming to USA bookstores
The bestselling first official tie-in book to the hit BBC television series by Guy Adams is finally arriving in stores in the United States in mid-July, but with a twist.
Instead of retaining the original title of Sherlock: The Casebook, the book will instead be retitled The Sherlock Files: The Official Companion to the Hit Television Series, and feature different imagery on the front cover.
Also, the book will be released as a paperback, instead of the original’s hardcover release. All interior content, and the page count of 160 pages, seems to be unaltered from the original UK release.
The Sherlock Files: The Official Companion to the Hit Television Series is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com ahead of its release on July 16 2013.
Sherlock: The Casebook, the original release of the title, remains available for order from Amazon.co.uk now, with worldwide shipping.

The first official guide to the BBC hit series Sherlock.
Fans of Sherlock Holmes will already be familiar with The Great Game — in which all characters and events in the novels are assumed real and discussed accordingly. BBC hit Sherlock has brought Conan Doyle’s legendary detective to a whole new audience and Sherlock: The Casebook is The Great Game for the next generation. This is no ordinary guide.
Each case is brought to life on the page and re-examined through Dr Watson’s blog, Inspector Lestrade’s police reports, newspaper articles about the crimes, Sherlock’s detective notes and any other surviving clues from the cases.
Interspersed amongst the evidence are exclusive interviews with the stars of the show, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves, writers and co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and the production team on everything from writing the scripts and bringing the characters to life on screen to set design and production.
This is a multi-dimensional companion to Sherlock and a glorious tribute to the world-famous detective.
