Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn't expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England―and Crowe somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web―where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

Andrew Lane's exciting second case for the teenage Sherlock leads the young detective to America, straight into the heart of a shocking conspiracy.

The great fight between justice and the evil side just present like the real world, and we need to uphold the justice and defeat the vicious force. Like in the story, despite Sherlock is still a child, he doesn't sit idly when he saw bad things occur. He chose to act, to conquer the evil side and maintain the peace of the world!
