Enola Holmes is hiding from the world s most famous detective-her own brother, Sherlock Holmes. But when she discovers a hidden cache of bold, brilliant charcoal drawings, she can t help but venture out to find who drew them: young Lady Cecily, who has disappeared from her bedroom without a trace. Braving midnight streets where murderers roam, Enola must unravel the clues-a leaning ladder, a shifty-eyed sales clerk, political pamphlets-but in order to save Lady Cecily from a powerful villain, Enola risks revealing more than she should . . .
In her follow-up to The Case of the Missing Marquess, which received four starred reviews, two-time Edgar Award winner Nancy Springer brings us back to the danger and intrigue of Victorian London as she continues the adventures of one of the wittiest and most exciting new heroines in today s literature.
