“Hope, I've discovered, is a sad nuisance. Hope is a horse with a broken leg.”
Lyndsay Faye, The Gods of Gotham

“As he passed a hand over his eyes, I recalled the he could not have slept more than twenty hours in the last seven days. For the first time since I had known him, Sherlock Holmes appeared to be exhausted by work rather than inaction.

"Because if I am right," he murmured, "I haven't the first idea what to do.”
Lyndsay Faye, Dust and Shadow: An Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr. John H. Watson

“Being brave and being alone aren't the same thing.”
Lyndsay Faye, Seven for a Secret

Chris Teel Finished Gods of Gotham this morning and it was amazing. Thankfully I recently jammed my Kindle full of Sherlock Holmes stories to tide me over. Hadn't read Holmes prior to Dust and Shadow. Can't wait for your next book.


Michael I finished TGOG and posted a review. Thanks for writing an enjoyable book. I look forward to your work in the future!
