Continuing the Saga

Just because Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has gone doesn't mean that the novels are finished. The legacy continues through a trust that asked Caleb Carr to continue. The results are the Case of the Italian Secretary. Holmes and Watson travel north to Edinburgh after Holmes receives a telegram from his brother. The mystery to be solved will save the queen's life, along with a young girl's reputation. The novel was thoroughly delightful in every way. While it wasn't the original, Carr was able to capture the voice and style of Dr. Watson's telling. The local library had this in the young adults section, but adult fans will enjoy it too.
