Um, so I've read the third book now too. This is so unlike me. I've read all the books (so far) in this series in like two months. Usually, I can stretch a good series for YEARS! Or, if there are only three books, at least for six months. But... the library had this on the shelf, so I got it.
I still like Mycroft and Sherlock best of the three, but I did like this one better than Mycroft Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes decides he's done with school because he'd rather track down a serial killer. He leaves his university and, with a little aid from his brother, sets off on his first manhunt.
Meanwhile, Mycroft is trying to find the missing fiance of the girl Mycroft fell in love with in a previous book. The two cases are tangentially related, but not tied together in an all-too-neat knot by the end, and I appreciated that.
I'm really hoping this series continues, because I'm enjoying it so much!
If This was a Movie, I Would Rate It: PG-13 for murder, suicide, violence, kidnapping, and so on. Once again, no cussing or smut. Remarkably clean for a modern murder mystery!
