Babes Amy, Lyndsay, Melinda, Sarah, and Taylor have a truly delightful chat with award-winning author and friend Daniel Stashower about Sherlock Holmes, history, Sherlockian pastiches, childhood reading, lizards with grenades, and more! 

Dan (BSI name Thurston) is an acclaimed biographer and narrative historian and winner of the Edgar, Agatha, and Anthony awards, and the Raymond Chandler Fulbright Fellowship in Detective Fiction, because he is never-before-seen levels of awesome. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, AARP: The Magazine, and National Geographic Traveler as well as other publications, and his newest book, In the Hour of Peril, recounts the incredible true story of Alan Pinkerton saving president-elect Abraham Lincoln from an assassination plot.  Because that happened.
