  • Description

    From the bestselling author of The Lost City of Z comes this “gripping” (The Miami Herald) and “hilarious” (EW) collection of real-life mysteries about people whose obsessions propel them into unfathomable and often deadly circumstances.
     
    Whether David Grann is investigating a mysterious murder, tracking a chameleon-like con artist, or hunting an elusive giant squid, he has proven to be one of the most gifted reporters and storytellers of his generation. In The Devil and Sherlock Holmes, Grann takes the reader around the world, revealing a gallery of rogues and heroes with their own particular fixations who show that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

      Some of these stories I had already heard,but it was nice to see them again in this compilation. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction sometimes, and David Grann's narrative style tells such fantastic stories.
