A world-famous magician.
A sabotaged illusion.
This case can only be solved by the world's greatest detective.

No, not Sherlock!

Boy-detective Artie Conan Doyle, the real brains behind Sherlock Holmes, is once again investigating the impossible.

With the help of best friend Ham, Artie must reveal the secret of the Vanishing Dragon and unmask the villain.

Can Artie solve the mystery -- before it's his turn to disappear?


Praise for Artie Conan Doyle and The Gravediggers' Club:

'The ingenious plot is rich enough to keep you guessing until the very end. A great series to snatch the attention of reluctant readers away from screens and get them reading.'
-- Carousel

'A hugely enjoyable crime mystery which this huge Holmes fan absolutely loved.'
-- Lara Mieduniecki, Blackwell's

'I LOVED IT! A perfect combination of a classic mystery and a new adventure.'
-- Sharleen Creasey, Seven Stories

'As soon as you turn the page, you find yourself instantly transported back to 19th century Edinburgh . . . a very enjoyable detective story consisting of some brilliant dialogue. It has a fantastic ending which makes a good impression for the rest of the series. '
-- Mr Ripley

'This is a clever and creative imagining of Arthur Conan Doyle as a middle school kid detective with his sidekick, Hamilton . . . I am reminded a bit of old school Enid Blyton and Franklin Dixon series novels.'
-- GoodReads

'An entertaining story'.
-- The Sherlock Holmes Journal

'A 19th century crime story, which weaves historical detail and interest into its plot to create a fast-moving and well-written novel'
