From the bestselling author of The Lost City of Z comes this brilliant collection of true stories about people whose fixations 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 one of the most gifted reporters and storytellers of his generation. In The Devil and Sherlock Holmes, Grann takes the reader around the world, revealing a gallery of rogues and heroes who show that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

‘’A gripping read. . . . Obsessives get themselves into some interesting places. Grann is the perfect guide to take you there.”-The Miami Herald

“A dozen intricately crafted accounts. . . . Like the best of stories, each carries the spice of intrigue and the momentum of a search. . . . They will make your heart race and, at times, ache. They’re stories to share with friends, even if Grann can’t be there himself.”-Cleveland Plain Dealer

Grann’s obsession with how narratives are told is complex and compelling. . . . But it’s the basic stories themselves—bizarre and fascinating, bolstered by exhaustive research—that make the book so gripping.”-Time Out New York

“Titillating. . . . Evidence of Grann’s abundant talent as a writer.”-Providence Journal

“The most powerful essay I read this year was David Grann’s ‘Trial by Fire.”-David Brooks, The New York Times
