Sherlock Holmes's great-granddaughter, Shelly, investigates a mystery in order to save her father's detective agency after her parents' death
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Lewis modernizes the famed Sherlock Holmes character by creating Shelly, the detective's great-granddaughter, a 17-year-old Bostonian who stars in the first volume of this projected series. Since the novel's central mystery, such as it is, doesn't surface until long past the novel's mid-point, criminology buffs won't find much suspense here. After her parents die in a car accident, Shelly inherits her father's respected detective agency and soon discovers a 70-year-old injustice that she must put to rights. Shelly--a heroine who calls to mind feisty Nancy Drew--is attractively drawn, and while the series' concept is rather gimmicky, it is not without its appeal. Ultimately, however, the book lacks a strong, well-paced plot, and does a disservice to the fictional hero whose legend it exploits. Ages 12-up.
