Canon Thursday: Unsolved Holmes

Dust and Shadow Cover

My fellow Baker Street Babe, the fabulous Lyndsay Faye, is the author of an acclaimed pastiche called Dust and Shadow in which Sherlock Holmes put his talents to work solving the Ripper killings.

Many pastiche authors (including yours truly in The Detective and The Woman) put Sherlock Holmes into a somewhat historical context and have him interact with real-life individuals. Others, like Lyndsay, take on the more difficult task of placing him in a true crime setting.

Today’s question is this: Which real-life case would you like to see Sherlock Holmes solve, whether on screen or on paper?

(I’d like to see him take on the Black Dahlia case.)


The Detective, The Woman and The Winking Tree: A Novel of Sherlock Holmes is available from all good bookstores and e-bookstores worldwide including in the USA Amazon,Barnes and Noble and Classic Specialities – and in all electronic formats including Amazon Kindle , iTunes(iPad/iPhone) and Kobo.
