Young Sherlock Holmes

Death Cloud is the first in a series of novels in which the iconic detective is reimagined as a brilliant, troubled and engaging teenager - creating unputdownable detective adventures that remain true to the spirit of the original books. The year is , and Sherlock Holmes is fourteen. His life is that of a perfectly ordinary army officer's son: boarding school, good manners, a classical education - the backbone of the British Empire. But all that is about to change. With his father suddenly posted to India, and his mother mysteriously 'unwell', Sherlock is sent to stay with his eccentric uncle and aunt in their vast house in Hampshire.

Young Sherlock Holmes: Books 1-3

Young Sherlock Holmes is a series of young adult thriller novels by British author Andrew Lane featuring Arthur Conan Doyle 's detective Sherlock Holmes as a teenager in the s and 70s that is faced with numerous mysteries, crimes and adventures throughout the series. So far there have been eight books released in the series, with the eighth book released in September Based on the success of Charlie Higson 's bestselling Young Bond series, the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle authorised a series of books detailing the life of the teenage Sherlock Holmes'. One of Andrew Lane's key aims is to explain some of the complexities of Holmes' character, who is scientific and analytical on the one hand, and artistic and moody on the other. Lane also wanted to ensure that his stories jibed with the original Doyle stories as it bothered him that Watson was presented as a young friend of Holmes in Young Sherlock Holmes which contradicts the events of A Study in Scarlet.

I should point out that these books are unrelated to the Young Sherlock Holmes film from the s. Through the stories, Lane provides a rich sensory experience, introducing the young reader to period-accurate details of life in the late s. As the action intensifies, the reader is carried along by this attention to detail, through mysteries that will stretch the imagination and give the reader a chance to unravel the truth along with Sherlock Holmes—mysteries that are just gruesome enough, but not too much for the older preteen or teenaged reader. Speaking of Holmes, his character is well fleshed out and develops in a believable way toward the dichotomies of reason and emotion in his personality. As with any book that explores the detective in his early life, certain decisions have to be made about what, exactly, made him who he is—an issue that most who write about the adult Holmes can either skirt or avoid altogether.
