Teaser Tuesday: Death Cloud by Andrew Lane

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

 Death Cloud by Andrew Lane

Death Cloud  - Macmillan
'Sherlock,' Mycroft said gently. 'Time for Reality'
He opened his eyes.
-- page 17

'So how are we going to get out?'
'I found a stable, didn't I,' Matty said, still aggrieved. 'There's 'orses!'
'I can't ride!'
-- page 184

Having seen the Young Sherlock Holmes series at my local bookshop for a while now, I got hold of the first book last week. Being a lover of the Conan Doyle stories, I'm always careful to approach Holmes-related books, but curiosity won over. I have to say, Andrew Lane really did a good job. Holmes is 14 in the first book, a clever, but somewhat lonely, teenager. Helped by his tutor, Andrew Crowe, his deductive ability and brilliant mind blossom and he sets out unraveling his first murder. I'm definitely up for more murder mystery after this!

These make the book sounds like an interesting take on the Sherlock Holmes 'canon.' Nice teasers!

This is a terrific teaser. I love Sherlock Holmes, especially the series starring Jeremy Brett. But I love the young Holmes stories too. This one sounds like a winner.

Thanks for visiting. I love Sherlock, and much of the "expanded universe." Sounds good.
