In consequence of Conan Doyle's endeavours, Edalji was released but denied compensation.

In his own right an accomplished mystery writer of the "Golden Age" of the 1930s, John Dickson Carr, whose gentlemanly habits were similar to Conan Doyle's, was requested by the family to produce a biography.
It was written with the full cooperation of the family, and with access to Conan Doyle's voluminous correspondence, diaries, notebooks and family albums.
