Christie isn't really a partner with Holmes, more a competitor, trying to win his attention by being as or more clever. She's precocious and can follow social mores when she wants, but she rarely bothers. She's drawn looking very like a doll and actually poses as one in Mazarin Stone to trap a thief.
Asides from a few manga conventions that weirded me out (like the whole doll thing) I actually liked this one pretty well. The art was pretty and easy to follow and I like Sherlock mysteries. I disliked the Sussex Vampire, which went careening away from the story to focus on vampires, and I've always found Dancing Men boring, but otherwise I rather enjoyed this collection. I wouldn't read more though and I don't see this as something that would interest most teens in my library who read manga.
Borrowed from another library in my consortium.
