The Mystery of the Scarlet Rose

by Irene Adler
Illustrated by Iacopo Bruno

Sherlock Holmes, Arsene Lupin, and Irene Adler meet up in London only to find a strange chess problem in the Times signed by "The Black Friar." It's written in an unknown code which Sherlock is eager to solve. The next day, the city is rocked by the news of a rich merchant found murdered. On the merchant's desk was scarlet rose: the same flower used as the calling card for a brazen criminal group that haunted the streets of London twenty years ago. Could the Scarlet Rose Gang be back?

"The reader is drawn into the story by Irene’s descriptive language creating the suspense and giving rich visual details. The three main characters are smart, loyal, resourceful, adventurous, and unique individuals. The book concludes with yet another big mystery to be solved. Recommended." - School Library Connection

Booklist Online - John Peters

"Young Irene Adler again joins her friends Sherlock Holmes and Arséne Lupin in a caper involving codes, disguises, cryptic clues, murder, revenge, and nighttime rendezvous in seedy neighborhoods. . . .Broad hints that one uncaptured member of the original gang was a government official, plus a casual mention of the name “Moriarty” at the end, point to future exploits for the intrepid trio of teen sleuths." - Booklist Online
