The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery

The Case of the Missing Marquess - Nancy Springer One nitpick: Part of Enola and her mother's success at eluding her famous brother, Sherlock Holmes, is predicated on the fact that he would not be aware of the vagaries of women's clothing, or the unconventional uses to which they could be put. However, we know from the canon that Holmes often disguised himself as a woman, so it was hard for me to believe that he would not have, at some point, figured out that his mother had hidden something in her bustle. Other than that one little detail, I really enjoyed it. I will be reading further in the series.
