Yep, and I've read the novel. "A Study in Scarlet" (1887). The anti-Mormon stuff is not the focus of the book but prominence is given to the notion of "avenging angels" i.e. members who kill selected gentiles and apostates (cf. our earlier discussion about "Danites"). Arthur Conan Doyle was merely reflecting current beliefs about the Church.
This website, http://www.jesusjournal.com/articles/publish/article_110.html
wants its readers to know that we are just as dangerous as we were in those "scarlet" times. Sensationalism and gullibility are still best sellers.
