This is the first book I’ve read from A.C. Katt.  The story covers approximately 20 years in the lives for 4 boys/young men, Liam, Milo, and brothers Rick and Sam, and is told in alternating POVs.  Fair warning that there is a lot of brutality in this book.

I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan – like I have read NONE of the books/stories and I was bored out of my mind when the old Basil Rathbone movies were on WGN Family Classics when I was a kid, so I didn’t go into this with any preconceived notions – which might be good.  Anyway, I sort of know the deal with Holmes and Watson, but … Continue reading
