About the Author
Brian grew up in Germany as the only son of an Anglo-German family. From an early age he immersed himself in literature which opened up new worlds to him and offered a kind of 'time travel' where no place or time in history is out of reach. Later he moved to Hong Kong and spent half a life time in the Far East exploring the mysteries of an ancient world. Besides his native languages English and German, he also studied French and Latin which has given him direct access to many ancient documents and texts. He is married and has two children.

A great take on the original Holmes stories. This book is really for kids aged 8 to 12 I'd say. My son (8) loved it. There are lots of the original drawings from other Holmes stories put together in a completely new Sherlock Holmes adventure. Only this time two boys help him solve a terrible crime.
