Take a wild ride by hansom cab along the road paved by Sherlock Holmes- a ride that leads you through medicine, law, pathology, toxicology, anatomy, blood chemistry, and the emergence of forensic science during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The Science of Sherlock Holmes is as fascinating and eye-opening as any Holmes mystery. Examining the Great Detective's remarkable adventures--along with gripping real-life mysteries such as the disappearance of Dr. George Parkman, wife-killer Kenneth Barlow, Jack the Ripper, and Lizzie Borden--author E. J. Wagner gives you a new perspective on both Holmes and modern-day forensic detection.

E. J. Wagner is a crime historian, lecturer, teller of suspense stories for adults, and moderator of the annual Forensic Forum at Stony Brook University's Museum of Long Island Natural Sciences. Her work has been published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, the New York Times, and the Lancet. E. J.'s Web site is http: //forensic.to/webhome/ejwagner/.
