"Enola Holmes's birthday is marred by the disappearance of her mother, so she must figure out why and how it took place, since no one else cares. Enola combines the logical reasoning of her haughty older brother, Sherlock, with the creativity and spirit of her mother. Expertly characterized by Katherine Kellgren, Enola is hurt, frustrated, puzzled, and proudly triumphant as she works her way through the clues left by her mother. Kellgren imbues Enola with emotion as she moves smoothly between voicing the proper British narrator and the lonely, yet caring and independent young lady. Kellgren gives all the characters clear and perfect voices in an audiobook that breathes life, humanity, and suspense into an adequate mystery. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
