Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon and The Wager—and one of the most gifted reporters and storytellers of his generation—comes a “horrifying, hilarious, and outlandish” (Entertainment Weekly) collection of gripping true crime mysteries about people whose obsessions propel them into unfathomable and often deadly circumstances.

"[Grann is] one of the preeminent adventure and true-crime writers working today."—New York Magazine

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 a superb storyteller. 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.

A nice compilation

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.
