I met his forensics researcher at a writers' conference in Quad-Cities. He mentioned that he and Al were talking about a CSI novel in which the William Peterson character had a dream in which he was Sherlock Holmes, and he solved a case using late 19th/early 20th Century forensics technology.

I mentioned that it might be more appropriate if the character dreamed he was Dr. John Thorndyke.
