1. A Walk on Baker Street.
1. Andrew had expected London to be large. He had not expected it to be frightening. Sitting close to one of the windows, Andrew looked out at the buildings, the shops and the people-more people than he had ever seen before in his life: beggars, crossing sweepers with their brooms, ragged boys with shoeshine boxes, women wrapped in shawls, and anonymous men wearing caps or billycock hats.
A mysterious, broken-nosed cabby, a beautiful actress, and a villainous art heist have one thing in common-but the only one man who knows what it is has methods that are a little, shall we say. irregular Late Victorian London: home to gas streetlights, bands of ragged urchins, and now, young Andrew Craigie, who recently arrived from a tiny Cornwall village with. his stern guardian, Mr. Dennison. At first the city feels dark and unwelcoming, but just around the corner is bustling Baker Street, where Andrew meets his first friend, Sara. Before long, London becomes downright interesting.

Robert Newman was absolutely successful in creating believable dialogue and multiple interwoven mysteries involving a few younger characters. However, I’m still not sure how large of an audience would enjoy a younger-YA/middle grade Victorian multi-layered mystery. My heart hopes that there are quite a few precocious mystery-lovers out there. What bothered me most about the book was the Baker Street Irregulars themselves. Ignoring the fact that the title of this book annoys me because of the singular versus the plural, the Irregulars aren't handled right.

Baker Street Irregulars: The Case of the Summerville Secret. The Case of the Threatened King. The Case of the Etruscan Treasure. The Case of the Frightened Friend. The Case of the Murdered Players.
