Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House

Goodwin, Vincent. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House. Magic Wagon. 2010. ISBN:9781602707245.

The Adventure of the Empty House is basically another adventure of the infamous Sherlock Holmes. In another murder thriller, Holmes along with his partner, Dr. John Watson, tries to catch a criminal that has been crafty enough to escape the fantastic mind of Sherlock Holmes. But not for long. The team of detectives came face to face at a waterfall somewhere in a remote area in Switzerland. The criminal then pulls a gun and there is a struggle. Both tumble and fall off of the cliff while leaving Watson up on the falls above. Will Holmes survive? At first, this book was sort of interesting. I thought that this book was extremely under my reading level, thus it was hard to follow. I also don't really like comic-type books. Otherwise, it was great!
This book would be great for people from the ages of early sixth grade down to the ending of fourth grade. I think they would really like it.
