Publisher's Summary

Acknowledged by Sherlock Holmes himself as the smarter brother, and gifted with even greater powers of observation than the famous consulting detective, Mycroft Holmes appears in only four stories in the Canon and remains an enigmatic figure wrapped in the mysteries of international politics and conspiracies.
Now, in Against the Brotherhood, we learn of Mycroft's secrets throught the eyes of his new secretary, Patterson Guthrie. Guthrie's upper-class education has not prepared him for the rough-and-tumble world of international politics, nor for his encounters with the beautiful and cunning Miss Gatspy, thief, spy, assassin - whatever the situation calls for. Mycroft is revealed to be a vigorous player at world politics and international skulduggery. Against the Brotherhood is full of attempted assassinations, secret spymasters, anarchist cabals, concealed identities, double- and triple-agents, burglary, and sabotage, all done in true Conan Doyle style.

Intriguing story

The plot was just twisted enough to keep me wanting more. How wonderful to listen to Mycroft and his machinations for the "government".

Would you recommend Against the Brotherhood to your friends? Why or why not?

Only if they were interested in a series -- the book doesn't close out -- it leads to another and thence another

Which scene was your favorite?

Ms Gatsby infusion and ...

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No -- this is an adventure story -- not a particularly moving story. Consider it as a period piece novel written in a 19th century style and enjoy the fruit of the authors hard work
