When we left the young Sherlock Holmes at the end of University, he had just left Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, under a literal cloud, his name stricken from the rolls. Now he’s back in London, having broken into Mycroft’s flat; estranged from his father in Yorkshire, he has nowhere else to go.

The art of disguise and role-playing serve Sherlock Holmes very well in the conduct of his investigations, playing a significant part in several of his most famous cases .

A quick and fun read! I want to give this 4 1/2 stars. I enjoyed reading about Holmes' short-lived career on the stage. As anyone who knows me can tell you, stories about Sherlock's disguises and acting are my favorites. The editing for this book in the trilogy was much smoother as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and I can't wait for the next one.

I only wish it was longer!
