Tell Me About It
One day Arthur Conan Doyle will create the greatest detective of all -- Sherlock Holmes. But right now Artie Conan Doyle is a twelve-year-old Edinburgh schoolboy with a mystery of his own to solve. Artie and his friend Ham are hired to investigate a series of suspicious accidents that have befallen world-famous magician, the Great Wizard of the North. It seems someone is determined to sabotage his spectacular new illusion. When the huge mechanical dragon created for the show vanishes, the theft appears to be completely impossible. Artie must reveal the trick and unmask the villain or face the deadly consequences. The cards have been dealt, the spell has been cast, and the game is afoot once more! Robert J. Harris, author of The World's Gone Loki series and Will Shakespeare and the Pirate's Fire, brings the young Conan Doyle to life in the second book of this ingenious new detective series.

Blog Tour: The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes by Robert J. Harris [Guest Post]


Author Robert J. Harris is pretty new to me, I finished reading Artie Conan Doyle and the Gravediggers' Club last week, and was lucky enough to dive into The Vanishing Dragon straight away. As soon as I began reading I was hooked, the characters have a way of making their humour stand out, but also leave a lasting impression with you.
As part of the blog tour for Robert J. Harris's new book, The Vanishing Dragon, I have a guest post about the many faces of Sherlock Holmes
