    DescriptionIt is the summer of 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is fourteen. On break from boarding school, he is staying with eccentric strangers--his uncle and aunt--in their vast house in Hampshire. When two local people die from symptoms that resemble the plague, Holmes begins to investigate what really killed them, helped by his new tutor, an American named Amyus Crowe. So begins Sherlock's true education in detection, as he discovers the dastardly crimes of a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent.

    Review quote
    "Andrew Lane begins a new series exploring the pre-history of the famous fictional detective. Mr. Lane has the approval of the descendants of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote the original Holmes stories, and purists will applaud the way he salts the story with clues to the sleuth's adult propensities. . . . The dramatic, violent ending leaves enough narrative strings dangling that readers over the age of 12 who enjoy detective fiction will grab for the sequel next fall." --"The Wall Street Journal""Lane's writing style is action-packed and detail-oriented." --"The Los Angeles Times""Lane's command of what will one day become Holmes's signature methods is remarkable. . . The novel strives to rescue Holmes from the prejudices of his creator, and thereby expand the pool of Holmes devotees. For that we can all be grateful." --"The New York Times Book Review""For a reader who has outgrown the Hardy Boys' adventures but still seeks mystery-solving plots, Andrew Lane's invention of a teenage Sherlock Holmes will seem timely. . . . Lane also knows how to do villains quite well." --"Chicago"" Tribune"""""Death Cloud" quickly becomes a true page-turner." --"Scripps Howard news service""Two recent series for young readers present Arthur Conan Doyle's great detective, Sherlock Holmes, as a teenager.

"Death Cloud: Sherlock Holmes, the Legend Begins" introduces young readers to a 14-year-old Holmes. The book has been endorsed by the Conan Doyle estate as consistent with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's vision of Holmes, important to parents who may be looking for books that send their young rea
