Mycroft and Sherlock
Mycroft and Sherlock | Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Anna Waterhouse
13 posts | 11 read | 12 to read
The new novel by NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, starring brothers Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. It is 1872, and a series of gruesome murders is the talk of London. Mycroft Holmes--now twenty-six and a force to be reckoned with at the War Office--has no interest in the killings; however, his brother Sherlock has developed a distasteful fascination for the macabre to the detriment of his studies, much to Mycroft's frustration.When a ship carrying cargo belonging to Mycroft's best friend Cyrus Douglas runs aground, Mycroft persuades Sherlock to serve as a tutor at the orphanage that Douglas runs as a charity, so that Douglas might travel to see what can be salvaged. Sherlock finds himself at home among the street urchins, and when a boy dies of a suspected drug overdose, he decides to investigate, following a trail of strange subterranean symbols to the squalid opium dens of the London docks.Meanwhile a meeting with a beautiful Chinese woman leads Mycroft to the very same mystery, one that forces him to examine the underbelly of the opium trade that is enriching his beloved Britain's coffers.As the stakes rise, the brothers find that they need one another's assistance and counsel. But a lifetime of keeping secrets from each other may have catastrophic consequences...

1. Oh my gosh so many. 7 in my bedroom alone. At least 10 in my loft space. Way too many stacks
2. Mycroft and Sherlock by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I‘m reading the first book now and loving it so I added the second book to the top of a pile in my room to read next month.

I had no idea Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was a author of fiction. I guess he has written a few of these. This is my first. Well paced and interesting. I‘ve enjoyed the book. A good addition to the Sherlock Holmes tradition. An autographed copy.

BookingitwithSandra I guess everyone needs something to fill their time when not being a superstar. 😉 3y

Reading outside tonight.

BestDogDad Wow! I had no idea that Kareem was an author. 3y
rretzler I‘ve read both books in the series and enjoyed them. The second, this book, is better than the first, IMO. 3y
Bookwormjillk @BestDogDad I know, right? I had to read it just to see. 3y

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s (yes, the basketball player) second Mycroft Holmes book is even better than the first. It‘s been some time since I‘ve read Conan Doyle, but this version centered on Mycroft, not Sherlock, has echoes of Conan Doyle‘s work. Very good story and perhaps a glimpse into why Mycroft becomes overweight in later life and the beginning of Sherlock‘s addiction. 4.5/5.0 ⭐️ #2019

Always fun to delve into the world of Sherlock and I love that this series focuses on Mycroft. As this follows the brothers during their younger years I find it interesting to see the birds and pieces of each story that lead to elements of their characters that we know from their later life. I'm hoping that we don't have to wait so long for a third installment.

This just seems... odd. I didn‘t know he wrote Sherlock Holmes books.

2BR02B Is this a sequel to 4y
umbrellagirl @2BR02B I think it is. I haven‘t read them so I‘m not sure how many there are. 4y
AlaMich He is going to be a writer for the Veronica Mars reboot, oddly enough. 4y
