12-year old Xena and her ten-year old brother Xander Holmes have moved to rainy, gray London with their parents from sunny Florida. But when a stranger shoves a note into Xena's hand saying, 'It fades fast,' things get interesting. They are descendants of Sherlock Holmes, and have inherited his unsolved cases! Watson's descendant Andrew is less than happy to meet them. The first case they attempt to solve involves a missing painting. When they learn the rest of the artist's paintings will be shown in a nearby gallery they are able to work on the case and satisfy their mother's urging to 'explore something cultural.' Travel with Xander and Xena through London as they pursue answers in this first book in a new series, The Sherlock Files.
