About the Author

LYNDSAY FAYE is a writer and actress who lives in New York with her husband and cat. --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

Review

''Following in the footsteps of such crime writers as Ellery Queen and Michael Dibdin. . . the author uses a convincing Watsonian voice to present versions of Holmes and his chronicler faithful to the originals. . . Sherlockians will hope to see further pastiches of this quality from Faye.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Lyndsay Faye's depiction of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and their world is exceptional in Dust and Shadow, an exciting and grimly vivid tale that confronts the murderous Jack the Ripper with A. Conan Doyle's immortal detective better than ever before.'' --Conan Doyle Estate

''At long last, an author of rare talent combines a thorough, enthusiastic knowledge of the Sherlock Holmes canon with truly rigorous research into, and respect for, the Jack the Ripper killings.'' -- Caleb Carr, New York Times bestselling author

''Faye displays a superb grasp of the known facts about the murders, and she effectively captures the vibrancy and squalor of the underclass in late nineteenth-century London. . . . She knows how to unfold a tale of murder and mystery.'' -- Booklist

''Sherlock Holmes is Jack the Ripper's mortal enemy, and never more so than in Lyndsay Faye's Dust and Shadow. This first novel has bags of atmosphere. With a great deal of skill, the fictional Holmes and Watson are carefully woven into the weft and woof of the true-life Ripper story.'' --Donald Rumbelow, coauthor of Jack the Ripper: Scotland Yard Investigates --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.
