"When I say, therefore, that [my brother] has better powers of observation than I...I am speaking the exact and literal truth." (Sherlock Holmes). This story occurs when Mycroft, an athletic Cambridge graduate, assists the secretary of State. He becomes embroiled in a mystery in Trinidad based on actual history. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a huge Holmesian, seven-foot-two tall, basketball's all-time leading scorer, and a US cultural ambassador. Anna Waterhouse is a professional screenwriter and script consultant.
Finally a good Mycroft story!

Wow! What? Wow! Awesome.
I loved this novel. So much fun! What a great story-twists, turns, history, and an excellent view of the times we've come from and how there is a solid line to the times we're in. I hope this is the first of several! Or even a Cyrus Douglass spin off! I'm all in!
