DescriptionThe year is 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is fourteen. His life is that of a perfectly ordinary army officer's son: boarding school, good manners, a classical education -- the backbone of the British Empire. But all that is about to change. With his father suddenly posted to India, and his mother mysteriously 'unwell', Sherlock is sent to stay with his eccentric uncle and aunt in their vast house in Hampshire. So begins a summer that leads Sherlock to uncover his first murder, a kidnap, corruption and a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent ...Death Cloud is the first in a series of novels in which the iconic detective is reimagined as a brilliant, troubled and engaging teenager -- creating unputdownable detective adventures that remain true to the spirit of the original books.

Reviews for Young Sherlock Holmes 1: Death Cloud
Attracting; I must state that it has made its way to my top five books. Young Sherlock finds a pustule-covered outside the Holmes Manor. This is the start of his life of adventure. This particular adventure takes him to London, the place where his brother, Mycroft lives and to France. He faces the diabolical Baron Maupertuis, whose sole goal in life is to bring down the British Empire! by Evan Mui
