A New York Times Bestselling Author
Lost Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes

Lindsay Faye’s best Sherlock Holmes tales, including two new works, are brought together in a stunning collection that spans Holmes’s career from self-taught young upstart to publicly lauded detective. He and Watson encounter all manner of villains and phonies in this must-read for Sherlockians and any fan of historical crime fiction with a modern sensibility.


Customer Reviews

“Faye’s wonderful collection of pastiches is rooted in a little-understood fact about the Holmes canon: the stories are not about Holmes; they’re about Watson observing Holmes . . . There are mysteries here and razzle-dazzle deductions . . . but the real attraction is the power of these 15 stories to make the originals glow even brighter. For Holmesians to read, then treasure.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Edgar-finalist Faye . . . presents pitch-perfect Watsonian narration . . . [An] outstanding collection . . . All impressively add psychological depth to the friendship, plausibly exploring personal dynamics in the wake of traumas such as the loss of Watson’s wife and Holmes’s apparent return from the dead, in a way that will resonate especially with fans of the BBC’s Sherlock.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Fans and neophytes alike should cheer Faye's reinvigoration of Conan Doyle's hero and his panoramic world.”
