*cite book | last= Conan Doyle | first= Arthur | authorlink= Arthur Conan Doyle | title= A Study in Scarlet | origyear=1888 | origmonth=July | publisher=Ward, Lock & Co [The first book of the famous Sherlock Holmes series presents Mormons in a quite unfavorable light. Specifically, Mormons in their early years of settlement in Utah are presented as a violent people, terrorizing their neighbors, and it is asserted that non-Mormon women were kidnapped and coerced into polygamous marriages. However, it might be that this writer did not specifically intend to write an anti-Mormon book, but utilized existing material in order to create what he thought of as an exotic and unexpected background for his murder mystery.]
