In Fire Storm , Andrew Lane's fourth action-filled puzzler for teen Sherlock, plunges the young detective into a fight for his life as he battles to discover what has happened to his missing friends.   Young Sherlock's friend and her father have vanished. Their house looks as if nobody has ever lived in it; the neighbors claim never to have heard of them. Sherlock begins to doubt his sanity, until a clever clue points him to Scotland. Following that clue leads him into a mystery that involves kidnapping, bodysnatchers, and a man who claims he can raise the dead. Only the budding detective Sherlock can untangle the mind-bending--and dangerous--puzzles that ensnare his friends. Think you know Sherlock Holmes? Think again!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When 16-year-old Sherlock Holmes' former tutor and his daughter disappear from their home, the young detective embarks on a quest to find and rescue them, which takes him from the English countryside, through London, and into Edinburgh, Scotland. This is the fourth entry in the Sherlock Holmes: The Legend Begins series, which explores the beginnings of the famous character. The story here is formulaic, but the clues are inventive and at times intricate. There are references to an earlier adventure, which established the reasons why Holmes is searching for Amyus Crowe, but readers can enjoy this entry without any backstory. At times Lane overexplains history or culture in a way that underestimates his audience, and Holmes' sidekick, Matty, knows too much about too many subjects to be believable as a street urchin. But these quirks won't prevent enjoyment of the story. Try this with fans of Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart series.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2014 Booklist"
