Bestselling local author Lyndsay Faye is returning to the bookshop for her newest collection of short stories, The Whole Art of Detection.
Faye is no stranger to Sherlock Holmes, having added her contribution to the cannon with her acclaimed debut novel Dust and Shadow. Faye’s best Holmes tales, including two new works, are brought together in The Whole Art of Detection, an extraordinary collection that spans Holmes’ career, from self-taught young upstart to lauded detective, both before and after his faked death over a Swiss waterfall in 1894. With Holmes and Watson encountering all manner of ungrateful relatives, phony psychologists, wronged wives, plaid-garbed villains, and even a peculiar species of deadly red leech, The Whole Art of Detection is a must-read for Sherlock-enthusiasts and any fan of historical crime fiction with a modern sensibility.
Faye will be in conversation with Abby from @crimebythebook
