This book describes the life of a young Sherlock Holmes. The author does a good job incorporating his later traits into that of a teenager. He is going through normal teenage stuff, when he is accused of murder at the tender age of 13. He uses his power of observation to escape from prison and solve the murder of which he is accused.
I thought the book in general was very good. It was very creative and gave the reader a great thrill. I didn't care much for the ending though.
