Book excerpt: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon—and one of the most gifted reporters and storytellers of his generation—comes a “gripping” (The Miami Herald), “hilarious” (Entertainment Weekly) collection of true crime 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 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.
