    Om Whole Art of Detection

    This collection of short mysteries by the international-bestselling author of Dust and Shadow ';belongs on the top shelf with the very best of Doyle's' (Nicholas Meyer, author of The Seven-Per-Cent Solution). Inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, Edgar Awardfinalist Lyndsay Faye has masterfully woven these quintessential characters into her own works of fictionfrom her acclaimed debut novel, Dust and Shadow, to a series of short stories for the Strand Magazine, whose predecessor published the first Sherlock Holmes story in 1892. The best of Faye's Sherlockian tales, including two new works, are brought together in a collection that spans the character's career, from self-taught upstart to lauded detective, both before and after he faked his own death over a Swiss waterfall in 1894. In ';The Lowther Park Mystery,' the unsociable Holmes is forced to attend a garden party at the request of his politician brother and improvises a bit of theater to foil a conspiracy against the government. ';The Adventure of the Thames Tunnel' brings Holmes's attention to the murder of a jewel thief in the middle of an underground railway passage. With Holmes and Watson encountering all manner of ungrateful relatives, phony psychologists, wronged wives, outright villains, and even a peculiar species of deadly red leech, The Whole Art of Detection is a must-read for any fan of historical crime fiction. ';If Lyndsay Faye's byline weren't on the cover, readers might deduce that the Sherlock Holmes mysteries in The Whole Art of Detection actually came from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.' David Martindale, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
