Black Ice lacks fire
Andrew Lane started off the trilogy with a thrilling insight into what Sherlock Holmes's teenage life could have been like. 'Death Cloud' and 'Red Leech' are both highly exciting reads which keep you turning the page wondering what will happen next.
Unfortunately, although 'Black Ice' is entertaining, it does not live up to the expectations of avid fans. It seems that the unlikely plot lacks depth and is very easily guessed, and Sherlock spends more time travelling than actually solving problems.
Furthermore, Lane's incorrect usage of the word "bought" (past tense of buy) instead of "brought" (past tense of bring) leaves fans of correctly-used grammar cringing (pages 257 and 258 being two such examples).
Overall it is an essential read for Sherlock Holmes fans (like myself) who are looking forward to reading 'Fire Storm' and wish to follow the story. Let's hope that the correct grammar will be used. by Glenn George
