Customer Reviews of The Case Of The Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun fast read for Sherlock Holmes fans Although this book is marketed as "Young Adult" i can only lay claim to the latter part of that descriptive. Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed this series of 6 books (read them in the order they are written). I all but memorized Sherlock Holmes stories when I was a teen and it is great to see an author 'revive' the genre. The attention to period details is excellent and the plot is a fast moving zippy read that made me wish the series would never end. I highly recommend this series.
