Bestselling local author Lyndsay Faye is returning to the bookshop for her newest collection of short stories, The Whole Art of Detection. Faye will be joined by book blogger Abby Endler from crimebythebook.com and @crimebythebook

Faye is no stranger to Sherlock Holmes, having addeed 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.

As Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes put it, "for those who despair that Arthur Conan Doyle only gave us 60 stories of Holmes, rejoice! Here are 15 more treasures!"

Lyndsay Faye is the author of five critically acclaimed books: Dust and Shadow, The Gods of Gotham, which was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel, Seven for a Secret, The Fatal Flame and Jane Steele. Faye, a true New Yorker in the sense that she was born elsewhere, lives in New York City with her husband, Gabriel.

Abby Endler is the blogger behind Crime by the Book, a crime fiction review blog. Her reviews can be found online at crimebythebook.com, and across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, where she has cultivated a large community of crime fiction readers. By day, Abby works in book publicity for Penguin Random House.
