Reviews of The 100-Year-Old Secret

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Truly captures Holmes and his methods!

by Tarissa on Oct 8, 2014

My new favorite series! I've just read book #1 of The Sherlock Files, and I must say it is awesome. Tracy Barrett has made a way for the modern generation to connect to our favorite detective. The modern-day descendants of Sherlock, a brother and sister sleuthing duo, Xander and Xena Holmes, are Americans going to England with their parents. Once there, they come into possession of Sherlock's casebook of unsolved mysteries. As any curious child would, these siblings embark on the adventure of a lifetime... following in their Great-Great-Great-Grandfather's footsteps and using modern tools and hindsight of history to locate clues and make their own sharp deductions. Even Watson's Great-Great-Great-Grandson is part of the hunt! The book shows how children truly can be intelligent if they'll just use their brain. I love how the author incorporated "the game" of deciphering who or what a stranger is, just by taking in the clues. She truly capture the mental spirit of Holmes. Recommended for young readers who enjoy a good mystery. Or for adults of any age who would like a fresh glimpse of Sherlock Holmes.
