A new novel written by NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! Fresh out of Cambridge University, the young Mycroft Holmes is already making a name for himself in government, working for the Secretary of State for War. Yet this most British of civil servants has strong ties to the faraway island of Trinidad, the birthplace of his best friend, Cyrus Douglas, a man of African descent, and where his fiancée Georgiana Sutton was raised. Mycroft's comfortable existence is overturned when Douglas receives troubling reports from home. There are rumors of mysterious disappearances, strange footprints in the sand, and spirits enticing children to their deaths, their bodies found drained of blood. Upon hearing the news, Georgiana abruptly departs for Trinidad. Near panic, Mycroft convinces Douglas that they should follow her, drawing the two men into a web of dark secrets that grows more treacherous with each step they take... Written by NBA superstar Kareem Abdul- Jabbar and screenwriter Anna Waterhouse, Mycroft Holmes reveals the untold story of Sherlock's older brother. This harrowing adventure changed his life, and set the stage for the man Mycroft would become: founder of the famous Diogenes Club and the hidden power behind the British government.… (més)

A very enjoyable read. The authors did an excellent job of describing 1870 London, Filled with interesting characters and a story line that moves at a good pace. I will be seeking out additional books from this series to read. ( )

In general it was fun mystery story. It read more like a movie than a novel though. It has been a while since I read the original Sherlock Holmes stories, but Mycroft didn't seem much like the Mycroft I pictured from Doyle's works. The best part of the book was the historical details about Trinidad. You could really tell that Abdul-Jabbar is a historian who has done his homework about the country. I just wish that as much detail was given to the characters and the mystery. ( )

It started out pretty well but then went quickly off the rails into territory that made so sense and was difficult to follow. ( )

It took me some time to get thru it but I enjoyed the storyline which is different from my normal picks. Well done, Mr Jabbar. ( )

The central conceit is audacious; Mycroft’s sense of moral outrage is nicely reflective of the era; the historical detail is solid; and the period decorum is well-maintained throughout. Only the characters and their cumbersome individual interactions are muffled by all the grade-A trappings.
