Note: 
In Eye of the Crow and Death in the Air, Peacock gave us a back story for Sherlock Holmes, inventing a tragic and impoverished childhood that leads the boy to hone his natural detective abilities. The author also made Sherlock half-Jewish, reinforcing his outsider status. Like the second volume, this third story refers to Sherlock as a "half-Jew" a few times, but contains no other Jewish content. It is an enjoyable story with a cleverly conceived mystery, narrated in the present tense with a breathtaking cliffhanger at every turn. The case revolves around the kidnapping of a wealthy young lady and a race to save the eyesight of a destitute orphan boy.
