Young Sherlock Holmes: Death Cloud by Andrew Lane

When the school holidays begin, Sherlock expects to be going home. But he isn’t. Instead, he has to reside with his Aunt and Uncle, as well as the suspicious housekeeper, Mrs Eglantine.

At the discovery of a corpse covered in swellings, Sherlock sets out to discover what killed the man. He becomes ensnared in a plot to wipe out England’s army.

This book is a thrilling, gripping tale of Sherlock Holmes as a child. For those who enjoyed the Artemis Fowl books but are seeking something with a little more drama and adventure, this is perfect. One of my favourite things about this is that Sherlock’s intellect and resourcefulness leads him to win many fights, and I found it interesting to find out how he would get out of imprisonment and other scrapes, as each time it was something original yet plausible.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
