About this book
Can Young Sherlock Holmes follow in the successful footsteps of Young Bond? This is the first children's book authorized by the Conan Doyle Estate; the author is a lifelong Holmes fan and is determined to create an authentic teenage Holmes. This opening novel is set in 1868; Holmes is 14, and at boarding school. He is sent to stay with an eccentric aunt and uncle in Hampshire one summer; there he will uncover his first murder, a kidnap, corruption and a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent. A colossal launch campaign is planned.
The world's most famous detective. The most brilliant mind in fiction. But before he became the great detective, who was young Sherlock Holmes?
