Comments: A disaster occurs at a museum and one man and one object are responsible.
Mycroft has a personality that you will either hate or love. He is intelligent and has a wit that can piss off the wrong people.
Sherlock visits Mycroft and things start to heat up right away. Mycroft's adventure is just starting. He is as deductive as his brother.
The Queen of England and a Professor bring in Mycroft to solve a crime. Mycroft is presented with a superior attitude. As we see his deductions his attitude is well deserved.
The art is done perfectly for the time period. Te illustration of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein shows a horrific mess.
The illustrations of a man in a submersible suit are astounding and the guns he wields.
In America Mycroft is saved by a beautiful woman, Agent Lark Adler one that comes armed. The drawing of her is magnificent. Just as you start to like Mycroft he does something to make you hate him again.
The story uses the fact that people are pretending to be someone other than who they are to often it grows tiresome. There are still surprises abounding in this story.
Well this book ends more or less how you would expect it to which works out well. It does a respectable job of paying homage to the smarter Holmes brother.
