Product description

A second stunning adventure starring the troubled, brilliant and always surprising Young Sherlock Holmes! Sherlock knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has dark secrets. But he didn’t expect to find a notorious killer, hanged by the US government, apparently alive and well in Surrey – and Crowe mixed up in it all. So begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the ocean to America: to the centre of a deadly web where life and death are cheap, and the truth has a price no sane person would pay…

    I love the fact that this book takes me on an adventure to America along with Sherlock Holmes, I also love the fact that there is so much adventure and it really gives you an insight to how sherlock would of been as a teen age boy living in the Victoria times. I think this is one of my favourite young Sherlock Holmes book out of the series and I recommended it to all my friends :)

    What I liked about Red Leech is the adventure that Sherlock goes on. Also, I think that it was a good idea to show Sherlock Homes as a child because it explains some things from the old books.
