Everyone loves a good mystery, and there are no better mysteries than those involving Sherlock Holmes. In his newest case, Holmes is hired to investigate a murder at a local circus and calls upon his new assistants - The Baker Street Irregulars - for help. The Baker Street Irregulars are a group of young orphan boys who live very near Mr. Holmes. Led by the two oldest boys, Ozzie and Wiggins, they improve their own detective skills by helping Mr. Holmes whenever and wherever he needs them. Set in Victorian London, this story is action-packed and fast-paced. Ozzie and Wiggins, along with the other boys, add excitement to the mystery at hand. The characters speak in Victorian slang, which really helps the reader get into the setting, but it makes me worry that some readers may get confused. However, there is a glossary provided in the back of the book. Also included are pieces about Victorian slang, the Science of Deduction, and Victorian hats and transportation, which were very fun and interesting to read. THE FALL OF THE AMAZING ZALINDAS really keeps you guessing and is perfect for younger male readers.
