The Devil and Sherlock Holmes
The Devil and Sherlock Holmes Tales of Murder, Madness, and Obsession By Grann, David Book - 2010

This collection of articles, mostly for "The New Yorker", are tied together only by a theme of obsession and David Grann's nose for incredible stories. The mysterious strangulation of a Sherlock Holmes scholar, an amnesiac firefighter haunted by whether heroism or cowardice led to his survival at the World Trade Center, a murder in Poland whose only clue is a disturbing postmodern novel, a marine biologist hunting for giant squid larvae, a con artist who just wants to be loved, and several more tales are expertly told.
