This is the first book in a series called Young Sherlock Holmes.
In the 1860’s, Sherlock Holmes was just a teenager. A very clever one obviously, and studying at boarding school.. But when the army posts his father and his mother mysteriously falls ill he is sent to live with his strange aunt and uncle.
There he starts on a journey involving murder, kidnapping, and a villain to become the great detective we all know.
The next book in the series is called Red Leech.
Thanks to Demelza from Ravenclaw for suggesting this book. I am sorry this post is a day late; my laptop is broken and is still being repaired.
