Young Sherlock Holmes: The Red Leech

young sherlock holmes The world’s most famous detective. The most brilliant mind in fiction. But before he became the great detective, who was young Sherlock Holmes?

The year is 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is fourteen. His life is that of a perfectly ordinary army officer’s son: boarding school, good manners, a classical education – the backbone of the British Empire. But all that is about to change.

When his tutor Amyus Crowe is summoned urgently to America, Sherlock leaves his old life behind completely. In the aftermath of a president’s assassination and a brutal civil war, Sherlock is swiftly embroiled in a brutal, bloody American adventure – in search of the villainous Red Leech.

This is a brilliant series in which the iconic detective is reimagined as a brilliant, troubled and engaging teenager – creating unputdownable detective adventures that remain true to the spirit of the original books.
