Young Sherlock Holmes: Bedlam is Andrew Lane's short read in which the iconic detective is reimagined as a brilliant, troubled and engaging teenager.

Sherlock has been incarcerated in the Bethlehem Hospital – Bedlam - where Victorian London’s most unfortunate citizens are locked away in squalor, cruelty and hopelessness. Sherlock tells them he’s not mad – but who’d believe a lunatic? There’s only one option: he has to escape – and then use all his rational powers to work out who put him there in the first place . . .

Sherlock Holmes: think you know him? Think again.
