The third case in the compelling Boy Sherlock Holmes series is full of as many twists and turns as the backstreets of Victorian London.

When a wealthy young girl vanishes as if by magic in Hyde Park, Sherlock is once again driven to prove himself. In a heart-stopping race against time, an innocent boy's survival depends on Sherlock's ability to solve the mysterious puzzle of the Vanishing Girl. As complex as the maze that protects the missing girl's hiding place, this case takes Sherlock racing to the countryside, the coast, and into the lair of a menagerie of exotic, dangerous creatures.

Haunted by memories of his shattered family, goaded by his enemies, driven to heal the fragile relationship between him and the beautiful Irene Doyle, Sherlock makes an almost fatal mistake. In the end, his brilliant powers of deduction and the steadfast eccentric Sigerson Bell save the day. Soon, very soon, the world will come to know him as the master detective of all time.

I'm really into mystery books and this book was like the other books in the series which is a good thing I enjoyed it just as much as the other ones!

Out of the three Sherlock Holmes books that I've read, this one is definitely my favourite! It is very interesting, suspenseful, and kept me on the edge of my seat. This is a great book!

This is the third book in "The Boy Sherlock Holmes" series by Canadian author Shane Peacock and it has the best plot of the three. While I loved the first book, Eye of the Crow, and also the second, Death in the Air, the author has taken Sherlock and given him a new maturity. The plot really seemed to flow well as I read this title. At any age, if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes, you must try this terrific series.

Another great installment of the Young Sherlock Holmes series. This time Sherlock finds himself having to travel outside of London the solve the mystery. We see his character and his methodology developing more in this story but he still manages to stay a teenager with all it's attendant angst through it all. Exciting, fun read.
