Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YAIt was a dark and stormy night in 1912 when Dr. John Watson was called out of retirement to join his friend Sherlock Holmes on board the Titanic. They were to travel to America to carry out a top-secret government mission. While on board, Holmes, disguised as a Naval Commodore, is to look after a young secret agent who is transporting important submarine plans to the U.S. Navy. The plans are stolen, corpses appear, the investigation proceeds, and all the while the ship moves across the Atlantic toward what the passengers think is a New York City dockbut readers know differently. Long-time fans will welcome another adventure with Holmes and Watson and, given the current level of interest in the Titanic disaster, even teens who haven't read Conan Doyle's works will enjoy this story.Patricia Noonan, Prince William Public Library, VA
