Synopsis

Something sinister is afoot in the house in the west of Ireland in which Sherlock is staying. There are frightened whisperings among the servants and the house's owners are clearly scared. But who - or what? - has terrified them so much that nobody will speak out? Young Sherlock must bring all his powers of deduction to unravelling his greatest mystery yet.

Another fast-paced, brilliantly plotted adventure as teenage Sherlock investigates a new crime and comes up against a fresh crop of sinister, clever criminals.

In the media

There's nothing elementary about this excellent series which puts an exciting and youthful spin on an old-fashioned hero.

An enjoyable and fun read.

Lane is a lifelong Holmes fan and it shows. Young Sherlock is very much worthy of the original and if Knife Edge is anything to go by, the series as a whole is cleverly conceived and well-executed. . . Lane has an easy way with characters, and even the ones almost incidental to his story clearly have a life of their own. This is a stylish and entertaining version of Sherlock that can be happily placed beside the originals in the library of any fan.
