Alan Arnold's novelization of the 1985 movie produced by Steven Spielberg and starring Nicholas Rowe as Holmes and Alan Cox as his friend and schoolmate John Watson.
On his first murder case, a brilliant schoolboy is swept into a perilous adventure!
YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES
When his friend the eccentric professor mysteriously dies, sixteen year-old Holmes suspects of play. The eager detective drags his new friend Watson through London't dark alleys and over the rooftops, braving disaster––and even death––to capture a tricky, powerful foe!
It's a shame Pocket Books didn't use the actual movie poster art (below) for the cover of their novelization. Always loved it.
