If you would like a copy of The Beekeeper's Apprentice signed by Laurie R. King, please click here.

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.

In 1915, long since retired from his observations of criminal humanity, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. Never did he think to meet an intellect to match his own- until his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a very modern fifteen-year-old whose mental acuity is equaled only by her audacity, tenacity, and penchant for trousers and cloth caps.
Under Holmes' s tutelage, Russell hones her talent for deduction, disguises, and danger: in the chilling case of a landowner' s mysterious fever and in a kidnapping in the wilds of Wales. But her ultimate challenge is yet to come. Soon the two sleuths are on the trail of a murderer whose machinations scatter meaningless clues... but whose objective is quite unequivocal: to end Russell and Holmes' s partnership- and their lives.
