Another thrilling adventure of Mycroft Holmes, with young Sherlock in tow!

Though he rose to fame as a sports star, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is an ardent devotee of Sherlock Holmes literature, as he (with co-writer Anna Waterhouse) demonstrated with the 2015 novel "Mycroft Holmes." Now comes the much-anticipated sequel, in which the ingenious Mycroft and his brother Sherlock (still a young student) must untangle a series of murders striking London's Chinese community. The pleasure here is not just in the authors' mastery of period pastiche, but the way they explore the historical concerns of minority subcultures in a genre that too often relegates them to the background. Great for all mystery fans!
