Dust and Shadow

FINALLY!  Book 3 is done.  But before I get to all that, let me first tell you about what I am now reading:  Dust and Shadows by Lyndsay Faye.  The book came out in 2009.  The gist of it is Sherlock Holmes is on the trail of Jack the Ripper.  And that's all I'm going to say about the plot.
Overdone, you say? Tsk, tsk. It is written in the voice of Dr. Watson and written quite good in the voice I might add. I've read most of Sir Conan Doyle's works and Ms. Faye has nearly nailed it.  Sometimes I find it arduous to read Conan Doyle's work because of the dated language, whereas Faye's novel is less cumbersome.  I'm not taken out of the story by the words.  I'm sure some others have snubbed this but I find it enjoyable.  If you're a Sherlock fan then I think you really will enjoy this throwback.  And as it is possibly one of the most famous unsolved crimes, I'm really enjoying this suspension of disbelief of having Sherlock Holmes in the thick of it.  Clever twist.
