This title is second in a thrilling, fast-paced adventure series about Sherlock Holmes' gang of street-urchin detectives. Holmes and Watson are out of town and it's up to the Boys to rescue Mary from the clutches of her evil stepfather, Marvin the Mystic. But Marvin is in cahoots with the dastardly Moriarty! Together they scheme to rob rich people's houses while Marvin performs seances. The Boys know Mary will never be safe with Marvin on the loose, so Rosie, the little flower girl, replaces Mary on stage in an attempt to reveal Marvin's scam. But everything goes horribly wrong - Marvin is murdered and Rosie kidnapped! In a race against time, the Boys dash across London and, with some help from Mary's real father, uncover the murderers and rescue their friend. This title is based on a popular 1980s BBC television series by the same author. It features exciting historical adventures, ideal for encouraging both boys and girls to read.
