Written by avid Buzztime players and brought to you by the publishers of our Buzztime Trivia Book Series...Introducing The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle
The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle (Square One, $29.95 USD) is the first book by father/son medical-doctor and author team Daniel Friedman, MD, and Eugene Friedman, MD. In this new book, the authors have pieced together meticulously Doyle’s own words to create a riveting account of his publicly stated opinions on the horrific “Jack the Ripper” murders. Included in the book are new pieces of evidence that help readers understand the facts around this still-elusive killer, along with a unique and well-researched account of the life of young Arthur Conan Doyle. The trajectory between these two seemingly disparate subjects in the Friedmans’ new book will lead readers to the conclusion that truth—elementary as it may be—is always stranger than fiction. This book has already been selected as a top “Featured Selection” by the Mystery Guild Book Club. In advance of publication, it has also been lauded by Kirkus Reviews (“Exposes the similarities of two very strange men, Jack the Ripper and Arthur Conan Doyle . . . [I]nteresting, as the authors expose the man with a titanic ego who always had a good excuse for his failures”), Booklist (“[The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle has] many virtues, including, most of all, the way it allows us to peek inside the mind of Arthur Conan Doyle,” and Library Journal (“Accurate and well researched . . . an engaging examination . . . the Friedmans’ conclusion about Jack and Doyle will raise eyebrows . . . bound to be read by fans of Victorian murder real and invented.”), among others.
