Nancy Springer has published forty novels for adults, young adults and children. In a career beginning shortly after she graduated from Gettysburg College in 1970, Springer wrote for ten years in the imaginary realms of mythological fantasy, then ventured on contemporary fantasy, magical realism, and women's fiction before turning her attention to children's literature. Her novels and stories for middle-grade and young adults range from contemporary realism, mystery/crime, and fantasy to her critically acclaimed novels based on the Arthurian mythos, I AM MORDRED: A TALE OF CAMELOT and I AM MORGAN LE FAY. Springer's children's books have won her two Edgar Allan Poe awards, a Carolyn W. Field award, various Children's Choice honors and numerous ALA Best Book listings. Her most recent series include the Tales of Rowan Hood, featuring Robin Hood’s daughter, and the Enola Holmes mysteries, starring the much younger sister of Sherlock Holmes.

At just 160 pages it covers the setting up of Enola's character and her feistiness rather well and makes nice points about turning the garments and strictures of female oppression into tools of her nascent profession. The description of slum streets and Cockney dialogue also feel convincing, but there's no getting over the fact that 'The Case of the Missing Marquess' feels more like a prologue to subsequent stories than a novel in its own right.
Still, there's enough here to make you feel the author's on to something with the character of Enola, and the epilogue setting her up for future adventures is nicely done.
I knew this was right up my street! I didn't know he had a younger sister. So meet Enola! Just as clever as Sherlock but miles younger. She's off to find where her mother has gone but along the way she encounters danger and another run away. I loved it all. But I must say this could have been so much more. I felt they cut the ending very suddenly and gave all answers away just to finish it when it could have been so much longer and more for me.
At just 170 ish pages it's a short read and I would have happily devoured another 170 pages of it too. But I loved it. I just wanted more, which is the sign of a good book I suppose. An easy read. An enjoyable read. Clever. A well deserved four stars from me.
