In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students—one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James “Mori” Moriarty—meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.
Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more…
FACT: Someone has been murdered in London’s Regent’s Park. The police have no leads.
FACT: Miss James “Mori” Moriarty and Sherlock “Lock” Holmes should be hitting the books on a school night. Instead, they are out crashing a crime scene.
FACT: Lock has challenged Mori to solve the case before he does. Challenge accepted.
FACT: Despite agreeing to Lock’s one rule—they must share every clue with each other—Mori is keeping secrets.
OBSERVATION: Sometimes you can’t trust the people closest to you with matters of the heart. And after this case, Mori may never trust Lock again.
Can you say plot twist? So I went into this book thinking it would be a completely different story. There is so much about this book that I wasn't expecting and that made it ten times better.
James Moriarty Jr. lost her mother a year ago and along with her mothers death came the change in her father. Mori and her brothers have been through a lot in the last year but when bodies start showing up in the park Mori and Lock start investigating the murders. Eventually Mori sorts out the truth, she frees herself and her brothers. In the mix she finds the truth about who her mother really was and frees herself and her brothers as well.
So this is an interesting story about how Sherlock and Moriarty got their start. They are teenagers in this fun series and so freaking good. Amazing character growth. Great plot and development. I love Sherlock Holmes and always have. This is a fun and enlightened twist on an already amazing story. I can't wait to continue with the next book because while the case is wrapped up the last sentence of the book left me wanting more!
