The author

Through meticulous study, Bruce Wexler has gained an intimate knowledge of the Victorian crime scene and early attempts at using forensic and logical methods of detection. Applying this study to his great fondness for the Sherlock Holmes stories, he has been able to blend the two — fact and fiction — to bring new insight into the life and times of the great detective.

Bruce Wexler's other books are The Wild, Wild West of Louis L'Amour and The Authentic South of Gone with the Wind.
