The plot of the story would focus on Enola Holmes, the young sister of brothers Sherlock and Mycroft. Enola is a gifted child in her own right and often outsmarts her genius brothers. However, on her 16th birthday, her mother suddenly disappears from their house. After seeking help from her brothers, Enola decides to take the matter into her own hands. She flees away to London to find her mother. However, things are way different than what she had expected. The young sleuth must elude her two brothers, cope with murderous villains on the run, and the kidnapping of a young nobleman, all while piecing together clues to her mother’s sudden disappearance.
