January Book Selection: The Case of the Missing Marquess

Just a reminder that our January book will be The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery by Nancy Springer. We will meet to discuss the book at 3:30pm on Monday, January 26, 2009 in the Children's Program Room.

When Enola Holmes, much younger sister of detective Sherlock Holmes, discovers her mother has disappeared - and on her fourteenth birthday, to make matters worse - she knows she alone can find her. Disguising herself as a grieving widow, Enola sets out to the heart of London to uncover her mother's whereabouts - but not even the last name Holmes can prepare her for what awaits.

Suddenly involved in the kidnapping of the young Marquess of Basilwether, Enola must escape murderous villains, free the spoiled *Marquess, and perhaps hardest of all, elude her shrewd older brother - all while collecting clues to her mother's disappearance.

*Marquess - a European nobleman
