Summary
The loyal and courageous Dr. Watson offers the harrowing story of Sherlock Holmes's attempt to hunt down Jack the Ripper. In a re-creation of history's most diabolical villain, Lyndsay Faye's debut brings authenticity to the atmosphere of Whitechapel and London in the fledgling days of tabloid journalism and recalls the ideals evinced by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most beloved and world-renowned characters. Jack the Ripper's identity, still hotly debated around the world more than a century after his crimes were committed, remains a mystery ripe for speculation. Dust and Shadow explores the terrifying prospect of tracking a serial killer without the advantage of modern forensics in this novel brimming with historical detail.--B.I.P
Summary

But when he is injured while pursuing the murder and the press questions his motives for solving the case, Holmes and Watson must go to unconventional lengths to stay on par with the cunning killer
