Publisher's Summary

The world’s most famous detective. The most brilliant mind in fiction. But before he became the great detective, who was young Sherlock Holmes?

Sherlock knows that Amyus Crow, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn't expect to find a notorious killer, hanged by the US government, apparently alive and well in Surrey - and Crow somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the ocean to America, to the centre of a deadly web - where life and death are cheap, and truth has a price no sane person would pay.

    Story
    "Great story but still a duplicate"
    Where does Young Sherlock Holmes 2: Red Leech rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I foung it quite entertaining, and engaging. I was very concerned to find out it's the same story as "Rebel Fire" by the same author, especially since I was impressed enough by this story and it's predecessor, "Death Cloud" to purchace that version as well. I'm not a young reader, unless you call 60+ young, but as a lofelong Holmes fan, I'm delighted with Andrew Lane's stories. They are well-written, full of great descriptions and lots of adventures.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Young Sherlock Holmes 2: Red Leech?

    The ability of young Sherlock to find his way out of trouble, just as interestingly as he finds his way into it.


    Have you listened to any of Dan Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will look for him in the future.


    Any additional comments?

    Just remember, "Rebel Fire" and this book are the same story, they just have different readers.

    "Young Sherlock"
    What did you love best about Young Sherlock Holmes 2: Red Leech?

    The adventure that shaped him to what he became in adulthood. I hope Andrew Lane will write more stories about young Sherlock.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Young Sherlock Holmes 2: Red Leech?

    The escape from the clutches of the cougar.


    Have you listened to any of Dan Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is an excellent narrator. He has a very distinctive voice and very good reader. I've listened to books that I will normally not read and ended up reading books he narrated either in audible or audio books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    NONE.


    Any additional comments?

    Please bring more of Dan Stevens' narrated books in audible or audio book.

    Story
    "Fascinating, good follow-up to "Death Cloud"."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a good story on it's own ; but is even better when read/listen to after the 1st in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sherlock Holmes, Andrew Lane takes AC Doyle's character and shows how he became


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

    Dan brings the characters to life, with the separate voices he uses. When you read the books some times all the characters don't feel as alive.


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

    yes
