I want to read that...


Young Sherlock Holmes: Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
From Amazon: The 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 . . .
The 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.

I really like the sound of this. It's published 4 June 2010 by Macmillan Children's Books.

So did you read it yet?
I'm a huge SH fan and really loved the way AL wrote this, it really seems as though SH could have started out just like that. Loved it!
