Description

Murder mystery meets carnival flair in a rollicking Victorian adventure centered on a boy with a unique appearance — and unique gifts.

In the seedy underworld of Victorian London, a boy is born and abandoned. Snatched up by an unscrupulous and abusive showman, Wild Boy, covered in hair from head to toe, becomes a sideshow freak. Isolated from other children and wickedly abused by the cruel master who bought him, Wild Boy becomes an avid observer, developing Sherlock Holmes–like deductive skills. Although he is tormented and insulted, kicked and spat at, his quick mind takes in everything he sees. When a murder occurs at the fair, Wild Boy is hastily accused. Can he use his powers of deduction to save himself? And will the talented and spunky young acrobat Clarissa be with him — or against him? Readers will be swept along by the cinematic pace, immersed in the vivid historical setting, and gripped by suspense as they wait to find out if a better fate could possibly await someone so very different.

    At first I was unsure about this book, it had good reviews but the first few pages I wasn't sure, '...a thick fog crept over the city...' but the author quickly found his voice and the story was racing. Wild Boy is a freak but he is likable and convincing character as too is Clarissa, a circus, acrobat girl of some talent and Sir Oswald with his war injuries. What a team.

    The tale has strong links to Sherlock Holmes, with adventure, murder and solving of crimes in London.
