About Lyndsay Faye

Lyndsay Faye moved to Manhattan in 2005 to audition for theatre work; she soon found that her days were more open after bulldozers tore down her day-job restaurant. In her first novel, Dust and Shadow: an Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr. John H Watson, she pays tribute to the aloof genius and his good-hearted friend, whose exploits she has loved since childhood. Having a great love for her adopted city, Faye decided to research the origins of the New York City Police Department, whose inception coincided with the Irish Potato Famine. In The Gods of Gotham, Seven for a Secret, and The Fatal Flame, Timothy Wilde navigates the rapids of a violently turbulent city and the perilous perils of learning police work in a riotous and racially divided society. In 14 languages, the first book of the trilogy has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel. Jane Steele, a novel that she reimagines as a gutsy, heroic serial killer, is based on her lasting affection for Jane Eyre.

One Final Bonus – Lyndsay Faye Quote 

“I hope that the epitaph of the human race when the world ends will be: Here perished a species which lived to tell stories.

We tell stories to strangers to ingratiate ourselves, stories to lovers to better adhere us skin to skin, stories in our heads to banish the demons. When we tell truth, often we are callous; when we tell lies, often we are kind. Through it all, we tell stories, and we own an uncanny knack for the task.”
― Lyndsay Faye, Jane Steele
