THREE people die in a town due to snakebite but Young Sherlock Holmes has reasons to believe that it was the work of one snake that comes and goes without getting detected; has an ulterior motive and is part of a bigger plan. Like the other four books in the Young Sherlock Holmes series, this book shows why Sherlock Holmes turned out to be the eccentric detective he became famous for. Be it learning an ancient martial art fighting technique in China, decoding secret messages or fighting off villains like never before, Sherlock does it all in Snake Bite. There is also a strange snake that bites people and then exits the room without leaving a trace — and there is no secret passage involved! The author stays close to the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the world of the Sherlock Holmes era by being accurate and interesting at the same time. Not once does the reader get bored; not once does the reader think about putting the book down — such is the grip of the narrative.
