Sherlock Homes
1868

This is the 4th book in a series about the young Sherlock Holmes. Spring Heeled Jack, a character out of old penny dreadfuls, seems to have come alive and is rampaging around London, scaring young women. Sherlock's friend Beatrice has asked him to help. It's a good story, but includes a lot of 19th century English political details as well as Sherlock's teenage introspection so needs a reader who isn't too impatient to get to the action. Probably better for middle school or a reader who already is interested in Sherlock Holmes, modern British history, or both.

The 4th of the Boy Sherlock Holmes books by Canadian author Shane Peacock. This one involves the myth of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. We also discover the origins of Holme's arch enemy, Moriarty.
