    A Great One!

    This one is a must for any Sherlock Holmes lover! Ms. King keeps in the tradition of Doyle's character, with a wife as an added plus. Beautifully written as the English language should be spoken, without 'fad talk'! You will not be disappointed, it is a very good read with excellent character development and description. Enjoy!

    I love these characters!

    Books by Laurie R. King are immediate purchases when I see them at the bookstore. This one was no exception. And it was thoroughly enjoyable. These are characters I want to know and live with. I devour these books in days and eagerly look forward to the next one or reread an older one now and then. The plots are well-crafted and interesting, and King always teaches me a little history while she's unraveling the mystery. I read a lot of mystery/thriller, and the only mystery author I've enjoyed as much or admired her writing as much was Kate Moss, who did not need the novelty of the legendary Sherlock Holmes to hook her readers. But I readily admit, I love getting bits more of the Holmes character I grew to love so much in Conan Doyle's stories - all of which I've read.

    I Also Recommend:

    Sherlock Holmes

    I love Sherlock Holmes in this series especially the idea that he has a wife who challenges him. But I think that in overall you can never have enough of Sherlock Holmes with Mary Russell.

    more from this reviewer

    I liked the mix of fact and fiction

    The storyline kept my interest and the narration gave me a better idea of the horrific 1906 earthquake and fires in San Francisco. This was my first read of a book by Laurie R. King. She is a talented writer.

    Another Holmes / Russell mystery hits the mark!!

    I liked the setting, the plot, the interesting characters, the use of 2 time periods & the ever evolving secret at the heart of the book. Personally, I could do without the 2 character narrating but is does help the book.
