The New York Times best-selling author of the Peter and the Starcatcher and Kingdom Keepers series, Ridley Pearson, brings us the stirring digital prequel to the Lock and Key series, which reimagines the origins of the rivalry between Sherlock Holmes and James Moriarty.
In The Gadwall Incident, listeners get a glimpse into James' life a mere 24 hours before the tipping point - before life as he knows it changes irrevocably and his childhood slips into the shadows. Listeners will come to know the dangers that surround the Moriartys before James and Moria are sent off to the hallowed halls of Baskerville Academy, where they first meet the insufferable, inexhaustible Sherlock Holmes. It's a tale full of intrigue and false starts and daring getaways, one that will leave listeners desperate to know what's next.

"Got me interested"
This is a prequel book for Lock & Key. I wasn't sure what to expect for a free prequel but this definitely has me looking forward to Lock & Key. Good story and narration.
"lots of threads hanging"
pretty good story but there was lots of threads left in the end, wondering what was really going on.
"The Unfinished Story"
if you don't like knowing how a story ends or like making up the ending of stories, this is for you. It has all the marks of a great book. it is suspenseful and mysterious yet short. Too short.
I had a hard time finishing this story. I didn't feel the voice was convincingly connected to the characters. I listened to it as a free book on Audible. I am not sure if it would have made a difference if I had read it myself instead of hearing it. I was not taken INTO the story, I always remained on the outside, just listening to it. It was frustrating. Something was lacking.
"Cute, quick story"
This is a quick story about an interesting family. It's clever from the perspective of intelligent kids.
Fantastic imaginative story
they are all great
Loved it, I couldn't stop listening and I hope more come out in quick succession.
If this series turns out a lot of books (like the 39 clues or Percy Jackson) I will be thrilled!!!!!
"☆☆☆☆ 1/2 to be honest..."
This is just a fun little teaser, would love the series to continue! Worthwhile nonetheless.
"lock and key"
This book is 10 out of 10 l love it love it love it !
"interesting and modern"
well this one was pretty interesting, likee the modern touches of reality, but actually it did confused me a little since I never heard anything about holmes or why the rivalry began actually unless i missed something up at some point.
so cool for a mystery perspective but lacking a little in the point it was supposed to make.
"This wasn't as interesting for me as the series"
This wasn't as interesting for me as the series. It didn't answer any burning questions I had and I don't think it really added anything.
