Now put yourself in the skin of Sherlock Holmes, the master of deduction, the most skilful investigator of all time, a precursor to semiotics, scientific method and disciplines such as cryptography, medicine and hypnosis. Using these skills he can determine the profession of anyone who passes him by. He can tell where they came from, where they’re going and what’s bothering them. He can deduce their intentions, what they’re hiding and whether they’re lying or telling the truth.
It’s not a simple task. Well, the objective that Daniel Tubau sets for us is to find out the method used by the most celebrated detective of them all.
