Review:

Praise for Eye Of The Crow

."..the first intriguing volume in an ambitious new series....a shadowy, vividly described London....Creative references to Doyle's characters abound...and Sherlock himself is cleverly interpreted....plenty of readers will like the smart, young detective they find here, and find themselves irresistibly drawn into his thrilling adventures."
-- Booklist, Starred review and named one of the Top Ten Crime Fiction for Youth

"The details of the plot are plausible, the pacing well timed, and the historical setting vividly depicted...The titular crow comes fascinatingly into play...On balance, the characters enrich the book and help give Holmes's storied abilities credence."
-- School Library Journal, Starred review

Praise for Death In The Air: The Boy Sherlock Holmes, His Second Case

"This is an exciting mystery, well written and fast paced...."
-- School Library Journal

"The fast-paced adventure is a treat."
-- The Globe and Mail

"And so the end comes to the beginning of the story of the world's most beloved detective....The series has courageously woven together famous people, popular myths and the street-level views of London. The mysteries, themselves, contain the illusive clues so reminiscent of Doyle's work.... The story is ripe with premonitions.... Readers ... will find this a satisfactory and hang-on-to-your-seat read. It was sad to know this is the final installment...."
-Highly Recommended, "CM Magazine
"
..".Peacock concludes his stellar saga with a final mystery.... This is a solid period mystery. Peacock once again uses London as a character.... Such characters as Irene Doyle, Malefactor (who will become Moriarty), Lestrade, and even a whiff of Watson all contribute to a feeling of authenticity ... this is a strong story. The ending is exciting and unexpected. This is an excellent conclusion to a wonderful series."
-- "VOYA Magazine"
