This book, as the others in the series, kept me on the edge of my seat. The only problem I foresee, is the difficulty of getting my hands on the next book in the series. I will keep trying though!
Sherlock Holmes: Knife Edge by Andrew Lane delves deep into Sherlock’s dark teenage years before he became the detective we all know and love. The story begins with Sherlock arriving in Ireland after a long “journey” (kidnapped and hidden in the ship). He returns to find his brother Mycroft waiting for him. However, Mycroft wasn’t there just for their reunion, he needed Sherlock’s help with a situation at Cloon Ard Castle. The British government had been invited to the castle to bid on a “psychic who can talk to the dead.” Mycroft had been chosen as the British representative but he needed Sherlock’s help in figuring out if he was truly psychic or certifiably false. From the beginning, Sherlock is dubious of the séances, but will he figure out how it’s done? You’ll have to read to find out! This book is definitely a great addition to the Sherlock Holmes collection and I would recommend it to any teen, adult, or Sherlock Holmes fan. You will encounter multiple murders, local myths that involve a shadowy sinister beast and Sherlock’s classic witty logic! For taking a new twist on an old book series while maintaining the classic Sherlock Holmes style of plot, I give this book 5 “elementary” stars! Reviewed by Zander H., age 13, Gulf Coast-America Mensa
