After the harrowing experience of losing his mother while solving a brutal murder in London's East End, young Sherlock Holmes commits himself to fighting crime … and is soon involved in another case. While visiting his father at the magnificent Crystal Palace, Sherlock stops to watch a remarkable and dangerous trapeze performance high above, framed by the stunning glass ceiling of the legendary building. Suddenly, the troupe's star is dropping, screaming and flailing, toward the floor. He lands with a sickening thud just a few feet away, and rolls up almost onto the boy's boots. Unconscious and bleeding profusely, his body is grotesquely twisted. In the mayhem that follows, Sherlock notices something that no one else sees -- something is amiss with the trapeze bar! He knows that foul play is afoot. What he doesn't know is that his discovery will put him on a frightening, twisted trail that leads to an entire gang of notorious criminals. Wrapped in the fascinating world of Victorian entertainment, its dangerous performances, and London's dark underworld, Death in the Air raises The Boy Sherlock Holmes to a whole new level.

Be sure not to miss Eye of the Crow , The Boy Sherlock Holmes, His First Case.

I'll have to say, these Sherlock Holmes books are pretty amazing. "Death in the Air" was another excellent mystery!

It was an excellent read: Sherlock Holmes is on his SECOND mystery. He tries to discover who murdered Monsieur Mercure, a flying trapeze star. He encounters gangs, shady criminals, etc. Though not as good as the first book (Eye of the Crow), it is definitely an interesting read.
