    Enjoyed

    Enjoyed the book. Russell & Holmes have good chemistry & the location is wonderful, Laurie R. King is a good writer & gives wonderful description of the location for the story. I have enjoyed all the books up to this one. Plan to read them all.

    more from this reviewer

    King's again

    Solid fun reading as usual. Her Doyle-ish style is rather amazing. However, not really a very good mystery. More like action/ travel guide to the Holy Land.

    I Also Recommend:

    A fantastic and cerebral adventure that succeeds in depicting both the spirit of Holmes and Russell and the mysticism and historical importance of Jerusalem.

    An exciting addition to the Holmes and Russell series and one of King's most successful outings. The plot is complicated and the exciting, the characters are complex and great company, and the references to landmarks in Palestine are fascinating and give flesh and life to the story and history of Jerusalem.

    An excellent book.

    Review of O Jerusalem by Laurie R. King

    This is a superb entry in the Mary Russell sherlock Holmes series. As always King's ability to create multi-dimensional characters,beautifully described backgrounds,and well defined plots makes the book difficult to leave. The story is out of the chronological order of the series since it takes place prior to the preceding novel. In the prior novel, the couple are married and in this one they are once again single . This device serves to give the reader the illusion that he has an intimate predictive knowledge of the two main characters The in depth knowledge of the religious and ethnic customs of the region [ Palestine ] as well as unique characterizations serve to make this entry the most outstanding book, so far, in the series.

    There's no place like Holmes!

    Laurie King has hit upon a good idea in her continuing series! Resurrect Sherlock Holmes! And indeed King does-- as the Master Detective, along with his apprentice Mary Russell (What? New readers may ask: Sherlock deigns to work with a female?), is off to Palestine in this episode, indeed continuing to be one of the world¿s hot spots! The game, indeed, is afoot, as the pair discover a plot to blow up Jerusalem and send it to kingdom come! No small time villains, here! Will Sherlock head off what is surely to be a holy war? Well, don¿t be surprised if Holmes doesn¿t solve the puzzle (duh!) and ¿all¿s well that ends well¿ (some OTHER Englishman once wrote!). King¿s story is a delight to read--perhaps not so for dyed-in-the-wool Holmes minimalists--but if you¿ve an open mind about Holmes, this one¿s worth a gambol, although probably not as sparkling as earlier episodes!
