In this book, the Russell and Holmes are sent by Mycroft to India in search of a lost spy, the grown-up Kim of Rudyard Kipling fame. He’s as real as Sherlock Holmes himself. The Game refers to the espionage between England and Russia, as well as the big game animal hunts. Great descriptions of India, its various classes, power struggles, and its relations with other countries. A good adventure, great characters. King’s books are filled with detail and sometimes the pace drags, but they’re definitely worth reading. This is one of my favorites in this series.

As usual, well written and extremely compelling. Makes you want to know what happens next. I have immensely enjoyed this Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series. Don't want it to end.

I liked the part where Mary and Sherlock went to see how Mycroft was doing after his recent heart attack.

"The Game" as in Kipling's Great Game as told in his novel "Kim" - Russell and Holmes are tasked to locate Kimball O'Hara. As usual, things don't necessarily go as planned. The story ends with ONE long-term change for our heroes to adjust to in future adventures...

So attracts holmes he supports and waits till she is of age to marry a may and october if not quite a december however this remains a very weird marriage one might think she seems more boy than girl his apprentice she goes from an abusive home to situations equally abusive forced lessons and physical hurt which holmes seems to avoid and dependent on mycroft too

I love the other Mary Russell books. I did not love this one. Seemed like one long tease to get to "Kim" and then minimal story on the most intriguing character.

I have read several of Laurie King's other books, and each one gets better and better. She is a fatastic story teller and has the knack for making you feel you are actually watching the plot unfold. Anyone who loves a good mystery without the gore will love these books. I will be back for more. Also love the idea of Holmes being married, now isn't that a mystery unto itself?
