Review: The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed
The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed by Stephanie Osborn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I couldn't wait to start reading this book. It picks up where "The Case of the Displaced Detectives: The Arrival" ends.
Holmes and Skye are hunting for the members of a spy ring that is out to sabotage Project: Tesseract, which Skye is the lead scientist for and the technology that brought Sherlock Holmes to our universe from another universe or continuum as it is called in the book. "The Case of the Displaced Detectives: The Arrival" ends with Skye getting shot by one of the spy ring as she and Holmes try to apprehend him before he can end The Chamber. "The Case of the Displaced Detectives: At Speed" picks up right where "The Arrival" ended.
Now, Holmes and Skye must investigate the attempted sabotage and try to find out who is behind everything while Skye recovers from the shooting. They spend a lot of time on Skye's ranch and later in a secure location provided by MI-5.
This is another fast paced story as Holmes and Skye work together to solve the case as well as growing closer to each other. They also stumble around each other as Holmes accustoms himself to twenty first century society and Skye confronts her issues from her past.
I enjoyed this book and am off to see if the library has the next book in the series.
