In Fire Storm, Andrew Lane's fourth action-filled puzzler for teen Sherlock, plunges the young detective into a fight for his life as he battles to discover what has happened to his missing friends.

Young Sherlock's friend and her father have vanished. Their house looks as if nobody has ever lived in it; the neighbors claim never to have heard of them.

Following that clue leads him into a mystery that involves kidnapping, bodysnatchers, and a man who claims he can raise the dead. Only the budding detective Sherlock can untangle the mind-bending--and dangerous--puzzles that ensnare his friends. Think you know Sherlock Holmes? Think again!
