|In the dead of night, in London’s East End in the foggy spring of 1867, a women is murdered and left in a pool of blood. No one sees the gruesome crime take place... except two crows. With only that knowledge in hand, an unhappy but brilliant 13-year-old boy named Sherlock Holmes seeks out and discovers more evidence. Thus begins the thrilling series “The Boy Sherlock Holmes,” by Shane Peacock, the first-ever account of the childhood adventures of the world’s greatest detective.|
