Winding up the "trilogy" nicely but leaving plenty of of room for further developments, the reunion of Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson is thrilling, scary, edgy, funny, and sweet. Filled with creepy villains, sinister peril, assorted insane behavior, foul-mouthed teens, and, at one point, a reunion scene so well-timed and perfectly crafted it'll have you reading it more than once. Author Brittany Cavallaro is in top form with The Case for Jamie, and her decision to let Charlotte's fierce, desperately determined narrative voice tell much of the story pays off many times.
"Really, if it were going to be over, finally over, I'd take the knife out of my boot and drive its point through that Moriarty thug's throat to know, once and for all, that one less man would be chasing Watson. That Watson would be that one small bit safer."
