This tale of Charlotte and Jamie's summer in Oxford ties up lots of issues left unresolved in Book 3, making it a satisfying, eventful series finale. Less lurid and edgy and more of a romp than previous books as the central characters try to get past their pasts, A Question of Holmes keeps the sarcastic humor and complex characterization readers have come to know and love. Put this one on the great beach-read list.

"Yes, we had taken down a criminal mastermind; yes, I had lost people I loved as we had done do; yes, I did in fact have that wretched middle name, but despite what Cassidy from Watson's French class told the Daily Mail, I had never once bitten off someone's ear because they wouldn't give me a cigarette.

"If the need had been urgent enough, I would have simply taken one."
