Actress, author Lyndsay Faye in Nashville

Tomorrow night (Wed, Jun 3, 6:30 PM) actress and mystery writer Lyndsay Faye will be at Nashville's Mysteries & More Bookstore to discuss and autograph her debut novel, Dust and Shadow, which pits Sherlock Holmes against Jack the Ripper in 19th Century London. The book is getting rave reviews from likes of Caleb Carr, and even got an endorsement from the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: "Lyndsay Faye's depiction of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and their world is exceptional in Dust and Shadow, an exciting and grimly vivid tale that confronts the murderous Jack the Ripper with A. Conan Doyle's immortal detective better than ever before."

Mysteries & More is in Lenox Village, 6965 Sunnywood Drive, Nashville, TN 37211. Call (615) 837-3300 or get directions here.
