Friday Memes: Black Ice by Andrew Lane

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week Black Ice by Andrew Lane has reached the top of my TBR mountain. This is a review book that I received from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. It will be released on Jan. 22 and is the third case in the Sherlock Holmes: The Legend Begins series. Here is the description:
A third case for teen Sherlock involves a heinous crime . . . and a brother with blood on his hands

When Sherlock and Amyus Crowe, his American tutor, visit Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft, in London, all they are expecting is lunch and some polite conversation. What they find shocks both of them to the core: a locked room, a dead body, and Mycroft holding a knife. The police are convinced Mycroft is a vicious murderer, but Sherlock is just as convinced he is innocent. Threatened with the gallows, Mycroft needs Sherlock to save him. The search for the truth necessitates an incredible journey, from a railway station for dead bodies in London all the way to the frozen city of Moscow—where Sherlock is afoot in a world of secrets and danger.
Sunlight sparkled on the surface of the water, sending daggers of light flashing towards Sherlock's eyes.
Friday 56:
A tear had been made around the level of his heart: the point where the blade had penetrated, Sherlock thought grimly.

But who had wielded the blade?
