Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn’t expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England - and Crowe 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 Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web - where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

Rebel Fire, Andrew Lane’s exciting second case for the teenage Sherlock, leads the young detective to America, straight into the heart of a shocking conspiracy.

Even better than # 1

I loved the first book in this series. This book was even better! It's adventure and mystery. It's also appropriate for all ages. I understand why it is endorsed by the Sherlock Holmes people. It's a great story about what events happened in Sherlock's teen years that shaped him into the great detective that he becomes.

This a duplicate of Red Leech

Would you try another book from Andrew Lane and/or Daniel Weyman?

I would love another book by this author. However this one isn't that. This is "Young Sherlock Holmes: The Red Leech" with a different name. Both stories are great, they are just the same story, not two different ones. So, buy one, buy the other, but don't buy both.

Well Done

Would you consider the audio edition of Rebel Fire to be better than the print version?

I consider myself a pretty harsh judge when it comes to Sherlock novels, both in writing style and story content. I felt this book was an excellent representation of a possible version of Sherlock's childhood. I have never read the printed version but I did enjoy the performer in this audio version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed many of the characters. The tutor, Sherlock and Mattie as well as Virginia were rich and well developed.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end of course. The wrap up is always the best.
