The follow-up to "Irene Adler"'s first book, The Dark Lady, The Soprano's Last Song is another exciting adventure set before the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Arsene Lupin stories of Maurice LeBlanc, showing the characters while they were in the process of becoming the people they are in the Holmes canon and Lupin novels. While the Soprano's Last Song is more of a Holmes-Adler affair -- Lupin is present throughout but sidelined to some extent, having both the personal crisis of his father's arrest and being out of his element in another country -- a love triangle develops among the trio, and it will be interesting to see how this develops in future books.
The book is very readable, the plot moves quickly, and some quibbles I had with the language in the first book (some dialogue seemed anachronistic and out of character) weren't present here.
Parents looking for a Sherlock Holmes book for their middle grade children would find a lot to commend here.
