14 year old Enola Holmes has decided to strike out on her own.  She has run away from home and moved to London. Here she has set up her very own detective agency, Dr. Ragostin’s Scientific Perditorian.   Posing as Ivy Meshle, Dr. Ragostins assistant, Enola interviews clients and then uses one of her many disguises to solve the cases that are brought to Dr. Ragostin.
However, Enola’s biggest challenge is to remain hidden from her most deadly pursuer:  Her older brothers, Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes.  They are determined to find her and return her to her boarding school.
