Staff Reviews


I like to think of Laurie King’s Mary Russell series as the perfect summer read: entertaining, charming and witty, and smart enough to keep the synapses sparking. The series’ sharp protagonist Mary Russell is one of my favorite fictional characters, and her famous sidekick is written with refreshing authenticity. Best of all? If you find yourself addicted, there are eight novels left to savor.

Description


In 1915, long since retired from his crime-fighting days, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybees on the Sussex Downs. Never did the Victorian detective think to meet an intellect matching his own- until his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a young twentieth-century lady whose mental acuity is equaled only by her penchant for deduction, disguises, and danger. Under Holmes' s reluctant tutelage,
Russell embarks on a case involving a landowner' s mysterious fever and the kidnapping of an American senator' s daughter in the wilds of Wales. Then a near-fatal bomb on her doorstep- and another on Holmes' s- sends the two sleuths on the trail of a murderer who scatters bizarre clues and seems utterly without motive. The villain' s objective, however, is quite unequivocal: to end Russell and Holmes' s partnership- and then their lives.
