Sherlock Holmes

The Guardian is reporting today that singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist Patti Smith is writing a crime novel inspired by Sherlock Holmes and Mickey Spillane.

"For the last two years ... I've been working on a detective story that starts at St Giles-in-the-Fields in London," she said, adding that the book is more than 68% complete.

Her previously published work include more than a dozen books of poetry, plus collections of artwork and lyrics. This would be her first novel.
