In the second brilliant, action-packed book in the Charlotte Holmes trilogy, Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are in a chase across Europe to untangle a web of shocking truths about the Holmes and Moriarty families.

Jamie and Charlotte are looking for a winter break reprieve in Sussex after a fall semester that almost got them killed. But nothing about their time off is proving simple, including Holmes and Watson’s growing feelings for each other. When Charlotte’s beloved Uncle Leander goes missing from the Holmes estate—after being oddly private about his latest assignment in a German art forgery ring—the game is afoot once again, and Charlotte throws herself into a search for answers.

So begins a dangerous race through the gritty underground scene in Berlin and glittering art houses in Prague, where Holmes and Watson discover that this complicated case might change everything they know about their families, themselves, and each other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Decent Sequel Not quite as great as the first novel in the series, but if you've come to like the leads, it's worth a read! I will definitely be continuing the series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I like this series, but it doesn't really do a fantastic job of carrying the spirit of Sherlock Holmes into a new YA format. It keeps the stuff I'm not really fond of - really unlikeable characters, to start with - and doesn't quite hit the stuff that makes Sherlock Holmes worth reading - the shocking twists and unforeseeable truths, for example. I enjoyed this, mostly, but as very much its own thing - the original source material is not very well represented, in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I have been waiting for this novel ever since I finished reading A Study in Charlotte. The author does not disappoint with this new story and the ending adds a great finishing touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sequel we deserved If you haven't yet read "A Study in Charlotte," go start there (you won't regret it), but consider ordering "The Last of August" at the same time so you can hop straight to the sequel! Cavallaro gives us a new mystery to solve with Holmes and Watson, and we get the chance to learn more about characters we've only gotten whispers of before. And the ending. You're going to have a lot of feelings about the ending.

Editorial Reviews

“Debut author Cavallaro brings Arthur Conan Doyle’s sleuths (or their distant relatives, anyway) into the 21st century, casting Holmes as a brilliant young woman and Watson, who narrates, as her admirer and accomplice...An involving murder mystery, and a promising start to a planned trilogy.”
