The Dark Lady (Sherlock, Lupin, and Me)
Did you ever wonder what Sherlock Holmes and Arsene Lupin, two of literatures greatest detectives, were like as kids? And who would know better than Irene Adler—Sherlock Holmes’s first and only girlfriend. Irene Adler tells the story of how she first met Sherlock and Lupin in this Victorian mystery series. Sherlock, Lupin, and Irene think they are on vacation in Saint-Malo. But a robbery, a dead man—possibly a murder—and an underground crime group invade this peaceful town. With indifferent police officers who ignore the murder after receiving bribes, it is up to these three young detectives to solve the mystery.
Irene’s relatable first-person narration fused with the humor of Sherlock and Lupin makes this novel an excellent spin-off of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes character. This new series is a brilliant way to introduce young readers to these classic literary figures. With a fast-paced plot, readers will become captivated with the events of 1870 Saint-Malo, eagerly turning the pages and begging for more of Irene Adler’s adventures with Sherlock and Lupin.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
