Black Ice is about Sherlock Holmes. He is a teen looking for adventure, but not looking to learn about anything. He is wrapped up in an adventure when his brother, Mycroft, is accused for murder. Sherlock manages to prove him innocent, and Mycroft decides to go to Russia so he can find his "spy" and break him out of jail. This is all messed up when Sherlock's brother is arrested for illegal immigration. Then the actors reveal that they are in a group to a very important Russian man.
This book, being about Sherlock Holmes, has a good mystery aspect within it. It brings some adventure and some violence. I have read better, but if you eat up mystery books, then this is one of the better books for you.
