Featuring Margalit Fox
Author of Conan Doyle for the Defense: How Sherlock Holmes's Creator Turned Real-Life Detective and Freed a Man Wrongly Imprisoned for Murder.  

After a woman was murdered in her Glasgow home in 1908, the police suspected Oscar Slater, a Jewish immigrant. Though he was known to be innocent, he was tried and convicted. Outraged, Arthur Conan Doyle – world-renowned as the creator of Sherlock Holmes - used Sherlock’s methods to reinvestigate the case, ultimately winning Slater’s freedom.

A senior writer at The New York Times, Fox is considered one of the foremost explanatory writers and literary stylists in American journalism.
