Six books for devotees of the BBC’s "Sherlock"

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Nicole Hill tagged six books for fans of the BBC's Sherlock, including:
Dust and Shadow: An Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr. John H. Watson, by Lyndsay Faye

Many have tried and failed to capture Doyle’s authorial voice, but Faye may come the closest. In this well-researched literary debut, Faye re-creates the world of Holmes and adds a character frequently seen in Sherlock spinoffs: Jack the Ripper. Yes, the Ripper is terrorizing Whitechapel, and the good Doctor Watson is back to tell us the true story of how Sherlock Holmes ended him. It’s an Anglophile’s dream.
Read about another book on the list.

Dust and Shadow is one of Kat Rosenfield's five top Jack the Ripper–inspired reads.
