Review

When his elder brother Mycroft is accused of murder, young Sherlock Holmes has to rely on his wits and ever-evolving powers of deduction to unravel the complex mystery and clear his name. Working undercover as part of a circus troupe, he travels from the sinister underworld of Victorian London to Moscow, which is under the strict control of the Third Section, the Tsar’s ruthless secret police force. As the plot twists and turns, Sherlock must work quickly if he is to save Mycroft from the gallows for his alleged crime, but who can he trust?

This third novel in the Young Sherlock Holmes series is an exciting, fast-paced adventure, which paints a vivid picture of mid-nineteenth century Britain and Russia.
