The second installment of Nancy Springer's series finds 14-year-old Enola Holmes, the much younger sister of Sherlock, living an independent life while continuing to evade her brothers. Using well-honed skills of observation and disguise, plus a talent for unlocking cryptic clues, she establishes herself as assistant to a bogus "scientific perditorian" and succeeds in finding the missing Lady Cecily. Katherine Kellgren brings the precocious Holmes sibling to life. As Enola (her name is "alone" spelled backwards) moves from assistant to street vendor to mute Sister of Mercy ministering to the street people of nineteenth-century London, Kellgren effortlessly manipulates her voice, bringing the setting and characters alive. She even brings sense to the visual cryptic clues as they are presented in audio. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
