Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2018
Cyrus Douglas and Mycroft Holmes return in this marvelous novel! And this time a young Sherlock Holmes joins the cast. This, like the 1st novel 'Mycroft', is one of the most engaging novels that I've ever had the good fortune to read. This book is a great find, not only for Sherlock Holmes fans, but for any reader of fiction. I enjoyed the portrayal of a young Sherlock (I can't say especially since there was so much in this book to enjoy!), and found it far more imaginative and provocative than any other of the several attempts by other various authors to portray the immortal sleuth as a young man. These novels (much like James Blaylock's 'St. Ives' series) have become a permanent part of my own select group of books that I reread over and again. I hope that these two great writers collaborate again (and again). This book is a solid gold nugget!
