A.S.S.A.S.S.I.N.A.T.I.O.N.

The singular adventure of Sherlock Holmes’ SECRET SON.

Guido Sgardoli

“WE’RE JUST TWO KIDS” “THAT’S WHERE YOU’RE WRONG…WE’RE TWO INVESTIGATORS WHO JUST HAPPEN TO BE ELEVEN YEARS OLD.”

 

News that Sherlock Holmes has mysteriously disappeared reaches an orphanage twenty miles south of London. David Pip is certain that the famous investigator is his father, and decides to escape with a friend to London, and then to Europe, to shed some light on the case.

A compelling read with some smiles thrown in, too. An incredible journey in the same league as the best adventure classics, with meetings between the protagonists and some of literature’s finest characters – the Canterville Ghost, Three Men in a Boat, Dracula, Heidi and Monsieur Poirot.. to name but a few. The author has very cleverly worked them all into the plot.
