" (3.5 stars) This is the second book in the Enola Holmes series. Enola has managed to establish herself in London, using the offices vacated by a fraud in her last case. She is presenting herself as the secretary to a Perditorian, who of course, does not really exist. Enola is surprised to find Dr. Watson on her doorstep, asking for help, in of all things, finding Enola Holmes, as he is worried about how her missing state is affecting Sherlock Holmes. While Enola finagles this awkward situation, she finds out about an intriguing case that Holmes has turned down regarding a missing young lady. She is quite concerned about her brother, and sends an encrypted message to her mother. In the meantime, she escapes a nasty attack while roaming the streets of London as a silent sister who helps the needy. As she manages to get the case of the young woman by appealing to the mother disguised as the wife of the Peditorian, she also must dodge Holmes, still wary of his intentions to send her away. While a little uneven at times, it was good to see the relationship, although at a distance start to develop between Enola and Sherlock. I am looking forward to reading the further adventures of Enola. "
