    It is the summer of 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is 14. On break from boarding school, he is staying with eccentric strangers—his uncle and aunt—in their vast house in Hampshire. When two local people die from symptoms that resemble the plague, Holmes begins to investigate what really killed them, helped by his new tutor, an American named Amyus Crowe. So begins Sherlock’s true education in detection, as he discovers the dastardly crimes of a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent.

    Would you listen to ${title} again? Why?

    I would listen to it again; its a clean and clever story for kids


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Amius Crow was my favorite. He is the foreshadow of Sherlock Holmes as a grown-up, except American.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Daniel Weyman is one of my favorite narrators, that is actually why I purchased the book. His work on Nick Harkaway's books is fabulous.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did

    Sam Capra has one reason to live: to rescue his baby son from the people who abducted him. An ex-CIA agent, Sam now owns bars around the world as cover for his real mission - working undercover for a secret network as mysterious as it is powerful, while using his skills to find his child. Now the kidnappers have offered a deadly deal: they'll surrender Sam's child... if Sam finds and murders the one man who can expose them.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the anxiety of the book did not evolve with the plot; therefore it was a little repetitive


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    because of who the characters were, I was really satisfied with the ending...a great twist


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked when mila gets her revenge


    Do you think The Last Minute needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    it seems open for a follow-up; if there were a little more editing (beefing up the characters, not have so much repetitive emotional statements, etc.) it could be an really great book.
