A new collection of Sherlock Holmes tales that shows the Great Detective and his partner, Dr Watson, as their acquaintances saw them.
Lyndsay Faye, two-time Edgar Award nominee, debuted with Dust and Shadow, her now-classic novel pitting Sherlock Holmes against Jack the Ripper. Now Faye is back with Observations by Gaslight, a thrilling volume of new and previously published short stories and novellas narrated by those who knew the Great Detective.
See Irene Adler team up with her former adversary in an eerie and near-deadly enquiry. Learn of the case that cemented the friendship between Holmes and Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard. And witness Stanley Hopkins' first meeting with the remote logician he idolizes.
From familiar faces like Mrs Hudson to minor characters like Lomax the sub-librarian, Observations by Gaslight – told through diaries, telegrams, and even grocery lists – paints a masterful portrait of Holmes and Watson as you have never seen them before.

'So authentic and real that readers will practically be able to see the dark smoke billowing from the chimney tops' Bookreporter
