Lock and Key Series by Ridley Pearson
Sherlock Holmes goes to prep school in Ridley Pearson's 'Lock and Key: The Downward Spiral'
Cancel anytime. The New York Times best-selling author of the Peter and the Starcatchers and Kingdom Keepers series, Ridley Pearson, brings us the riveting first tale of the Lock and Key trilogy about the origins of the rivalry between literature's most famous enemies - Sherlock Holmes and James Moriarty - told from the perspective of James' observant little sister, Moria. Before James grew up to be a ruthless, remorseless villain, he was a curious boy from Boston, with a penchant for trouble and an acid tongue. Thrown into a boarding school against his wishes, James winds up rooming with a most unlikely companion: a lanky British know-it-all named Sherlock Holmes "Lock" to his friends. An heirloom Bible donated by the Moriarty family more than years ago has gone missing, and it doesn't take long for the two to find themselves embroiled in the school-wide scandal. The school is on lockdown until it's found, strange clues keep finding their way to James, and a secret society lurks behind it all. It's a brave new reimagining of the Sherlock Holmes series as only master of suspense Ridley Pearson could envision.
Ridley spends a good deal of his time sneaking around the Disney Parks and aboard the Disney Cruise Line Ships, all in the name of research. But before he became the scheming, remorseless villain he is now, he was just my older brother, James. James and I grew up like the Charles River and the cobblestone sidewalks that run alongside it separate but inseparable. He was fast and rough as only a big brother can be, and I gave him boundaries, which he constantly rolled up against but which we both knew he needed. But that was before Father forced us to enroll at Baskerville Academy.
For Moira and James Moriarty, their first semester at Baskerville Academy opened a world of secrets surrounding their family history and brought them into contact with the strange and eccentric Sherlock Holmes. Our story begins when James Moriarty and his younger sister, Moria.
