The Crack in the Lens

If you love historical fiction in the USA, you'll love this one set in San Marco, Texas. In the 1890s, we're introduced to two German red-haired brothers, Gustav "Old Red" Amlingmeyer and Otto "Big Red" Amlingmeyer. We watch them travel across the USA, solving mystery along the way with the Holmes method, based on Sherlock Holmes. Otto's a novelist, and Gustav tag along for the ride. There's tons of humorous moments in this historical mystery that separates them from the rest. When they enter the wild west, it's up to them to solve an old murder, when the town's against them, for stirring up the hornet's nest. We watch them fight against evil and get them out of trouble. They're caring brothers, through thick and thin. I clearly cheered them on. You get hooked on them and their adventures through the west and midwest.
