Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Lehmann
Before a man can become a legend, he must first be a boy. In this final installment of "The Boy Sherlock Holmes" series, Sherlock lays the final pieces in his burial of his boyhood and the foundation for his life of solving crime. Sherlock has sworn off his detective work after it is responsible for his mother's death. But when the henchmen of his nemesis resurface, one of them in a powerful position, Sherlock cannot help but try to stop whatever evil is in the works. With the help of his aging master, the apothecary Sigerson Bell, Sherlock discovers the secret the bank president is keeping and unravels the Malefactor's plan. He must act to keep the bank and the nation secure. Though this book is the fifth in a series that is a prequel to the canon of Sherlock Holmes stories, it can easily be read on its own. Necessary details from the previous stories are woven into the telling of this tale, and this story has its own arc and character development. This gripping murder mystery will engage readers and encourage them to read the rest of the series and the classic stories of Sherlock Holmes. Reviewer: Jennifer Lehmann
From the Publisher
Finalist - 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award (Children's Text)

“And so the end comes to the beginning of the story of the world’s most beloved detective….The series has courageously woven together famous people, popular myths and the street-level views of London. The mysteries, themselves, contain the illusive clues so reminiscent of Doyle’s work…. The story is ripe with premonitions…. Readers … will find this a satisfactory and hang-on-to-your-seat read. It was sad to know this is the final installment....”
–Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“…Peacock concludes his stellar saga with a final mystery…. This is a solid period mystery. Peacock once again uses London as a character…. Such characters as Irene Doyle, Malefactor (who will become Moriarty), Lestrade, and even a whiff of Watson all contribute to a feeling of authenticity … this is a strong story. The ending is exciting and unexpected. This is an excellent conclusion to a wonderful series.”
