Synopsis

After the harrowing experience of losing his mother while solving a brutal murder in London’s East End, young Sherlock Holmes commits himself to fighting crime … and is soon involved in another case. While visiting his father at the magnificent Crystal Palace, Sherlock stops to watch a remarkable and dangerous trapeze performance high above, framed by the stunning glass ceiling of the legendary building. Suddenly, the troupe’s star is dropping, screaming and flailing, toward the floor. He lands with a sickening thud just a few feet away, and rolls up almost onto the boy’s boots. Unconscious and bleeding profusely, his body is grotesquely twisted. In the mayhem that follows, Sherlock notices something that no one else sees — something is amiss with the trapeze bar! He knows that foul play is afoot. What he doesn’t know is that his discovery will put him on a frightening, twisted trail that leads to an entire gang of notorious criminals. Wrapped in the fascinating world of Victorian entertainment, its dangerous performances, and London’s dark underworld, Death in the Air raises The Boy Sherlock Holmes to a whole new level.

Be sure not to miss Eye of the Crow, The Boy Sherlock Holmes, His First Case.


From the Hardcover edition.

Praise

Praise

Praise for Death in the Air:
“Peacock continues his literary derring-do in the second Sherlock Holmes novel, Death in the Air, as suspenseful and riveting as the first book….The crafty turns and twists of this mystery adventure only intensify from the sensational opening, so that you can’t turn the pages fast enough….Peacock’s writing, smart, lithe, and assured, is perfectly attuned to readers in its accessibility and appeal…” —The Ottawa Citizen


Praise for Eye of the Crow
“a thrilling, impeccably paced murder mystery.”
— Quill and Quire, Starred Review
