A new novel written by NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar!Fresh out of Cambridge University, the young Mycroft Holmes is already making a name​ ​for himself in government, working for the Secretary of State for War. Yet this most British of civil servants has strong ties to the faraway island of Trinidad, the birthplace of his best friend, Cyrus Douglas, a man of African descent, and where his fiancée Georgiana Sutton was raised.Mycroft’s comfortable existence is overturned when Douglas receives troubling reports​ from home. There are rumors of mysterious disappearances, strange footprints in the sand, and spirits enticing children to their deaths, their bodies found drained of blood. Upon hearing the news, Georgiana abruptly departs for Trinidad. Near panic, Mycroft convinces Douglas that they should follow her, drawing the two men into a web of dark secrets that grows more treacherous with each step they take...Written by NBA superstar Kareem Abdul- Jabbar and screenwriter Anna Waterhouse, Mycroft Holmes reveals the untold story of Sherlock’s older brother. This harrowing adventure changed his life, and set the​ stage for the man Mycroft would become: founder of the famous Diogenes Club and the hidden power behind the British government.

4.0 Halloween Bingo - Diverse Voices - Breathless
Ah, yes, that CloudLibrary thing was just toooooo tempting. I've been wanting to read this for quite some time, but never think of looking for it when I'm at the library.

4.0 Mycroft Holmes
The title of this book was the first thing to catch my eye; the second was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's name on the cover as one of the authors. How can I possibly pass this up? As an avowed fangirl of Sherlock Holmes, I've learned to stay away from almost all pastiches and mysteries featuring my fictio...

Is it heretic to say that I prefer Douglas to Watson?This book looks at Sherlock Holmes' brother Mycroft in his early salad days, if you can see the Holmes' bros as having salad days. Mycroft's best buddy is Douglas, a black American, and Douglas actually plays a greater role in the story than Watso...

3.5 Mycroft by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse
So this is all about the young Mycroft Holmes, written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse.

5.0 A great new entry into Sherlock Holmes' world
I am a long-time Holmesian, and I love to see what different authors do with the spin-offs. Some are better than others, of course ... and this is one of the best. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, himself a long-time Holmesian, has made Mycroft Holmes his main character in a story about human trafficking during...
