If you are a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, and have already found this contemporary spin-off that features Charlotte Holmes, you will be delighted to delve into book number 3. In case you are happily surprised to hear about this series, check out our reviews of A Study in Charlotte and The Last of August.That will get you up to speed and ready for the latest adventures. So, Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are coping with the death of their friend August Moriarty. It’s been over a year, and they are on separate paths, and haven’t even spoken. Jamie has returned to their posh high school, and is basically going through the motions, even with his sweet new girlfriend. Frankly, he misses Charlotte as much as he is angry with her. Charlotte, on the other hand, is on the run, mostly from the Moriarty family who blame her for August’s death. But strange things are beginning to happen in Jamie’s life–deleted projects and homework, missed messages, and many separate mini-mysteries that come together into one giant thriller. No spoilers here, so we can only recommend that you pick up a copy and start reading so you’ll be ready when the adventures continue, in Book 4!
