Reviews
"...The Dragon Turn is a wonderful book. I think its target audience will love it for its adventure, mystery and characters, and, as an older reader, I enjoyed it for the way Peacock wrote Sherlock Holmes."
--Literary Treats

"...Peacock's fifth mystery featuring the boy Sherlock Holmes does not disappoint. Drama, love, and a fine trail of clues lead the reader through another memorable romp into the heart of a Victorian murder mystery. This historical novel is rich in detail, setting, and culture."
--Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

"...Shane Peacock delivers another intriguing novel exploring the boy detective.... His Sherlock is a penniless but resourceful young man living with an eccentric apothecary who encourages his curiosity and his powers of observation...."
--Winnipeg Free Press

"With a trail of clues, a cast of shady characters, and even a hint of romance, The Dragon Turn has more twists and turns than a carnival ride and will keep readers guessing until its satisfying conclusion... Peacock is a master storyteller, and his richly imagined details of murder, revenge, betrayal, theatre, magic and exotic dragons combine to create an absolute page-turner of a book."
--TD Canada Trust Canadian Children's Literary Award Jury Comments

"Peacock flawlessly recreates the London of the Victorian era... Readers feel as if they are walking along with the young Sherlock Holmes as he begins to awaken to his prodigious skills and fights to figure out how a magician can make a dragon appear... and disappear... Beautifully written with whip-smart dialogue."
-- John Spray Mystery Award, Jury Comments
