    "May be the weakest of the three here on Audible."
    What did you love best about Black Ice?

    More Mycroft. He has always been a great character to me and it's a shame Doyle didn't use him more. Andrew Lane uses a lot good hints at how Sherlock may have become the consulting detective we know him as such as how he learns to deduce, play the violin, etc.


    What other book might you compare Black Ice to and why?

    Probably its two predecessors. I think they have gotten weaker as they have gone on though.


    Did James Langton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did, but I have Daniel Wayman's voice in my mind for this series. He definitely doesn't do as good of a job on Amyus Crow and at times I think his Mycroft was just what you would think of a stuffed shirt toff.


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

    So long Amyus, it's Mycroft's show this time.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are enjoyable for adults who love Sherlock. However, don't think that you're going to surprised by the outcome or solution. They are young adult fiction and written as such.
