"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

Eye of the Crow (2011)

Shane Peacock's first novel in his "The Boy Sherlock Holmes" series. The impressive cover art below is from an international edition.


His 1st Case
Sherlock Holmes, just 13, is a misfit. Friendless, bullied at school, he belongs nowhere and has only his wits. But what wits they are! His keen powers of observation are already apparent, though he is still a boy. He loves to amuse himself by constructing histories from the smallest detail for everyone he meets. Partly for fun, he focuses his attention on a sensational murder to see if he can solve it. But his game turns deadly serious when he finds himself the accused - and in London, they hang boys of 13.
