In Search of Watson Rating: 5


Author: Tracy Mack and Michael Citrin

If there’s crime in town, detective Sherlock Holmes and his band of young investigators, the Baker Street Irregulars, are on the case. This time, a statue has fallen on a man named Calico Finch at the museum. But Holmes knows it’s no accident. Calico Finch was obsessed with discovering a lost treasure—a statue of the goddess Diana. And it seems that someone else will stop at nothing—even murder—to steal Finch’s research.


Searching for Family

Meanwhile, Ozzie Manning has returned from his travels in Oxfordshire where he was trying to uncover his father’s identity. And thank goodness he’s back because Dr. Watson, Holmes’s best pal and partner in crime fighting, has been kidnapped! The Baker Street Irregulars are on the case, but they need Ozzie’s smarts to help them find his whereabouts.


Strange Behavior

After a run-in with a group of tough Gents, Ozzie and the Irregulars suspect something strange is going on. Why is Sherlock Holmes sitting at home while his best friend his at the mercy of a potentially violent band of criminals? And why has he sent out the kids to do his dirty work? That’s not like him. Perhaps there’s more to Dr. Watson’s disappearance than they realize.


The Bottom Line

In Search of Watson is a gripping addition to the Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars series. It’s short, mysterious and unpredictable. The Irregulars get themselves into some very sticky—and deadly—situations, situations in which escape seems impossible. If you’re into mysteries, then you’ll love this series.
