From Publishers' Weekly:

In this offbeat first novel, set in England during the 1920s, a photographer tells a mesmerizing tale about how he was enlisted by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his crusade to make the world believe in fairies. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

This rather bizarre first novel is an engaging mixture of fact and fiction. Hoping to win a reward offered by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, hapless photographer Charles Castle tries to prove that some apparently genuine photographs of fairies are actually brilliant frauds. Soon, however, Castle wants to prove the opposite; he is desperate to locate and photograph on his own the fairies he thinks populate an English garden. This quest leads him into a series of mishaps involving gypsies, murderers, and a whole cast of truly unique characters. Readers will feel compelled to finish this book to see what happens to all the strange characters Castle encounters on his venture. Recommended for general readers with a taste for slightly offbeat stories.--Patricia C. Heaney, Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010.
