Publisher's Summary

Mary Russell, assistant and protégée of the great Sherlock Holmes, finds herself and her partner once more mired in mystery. When Mary is given a scrap of papyrus by an old archaeologist friend, she has no inkling of what it contains. Written in Greek, it could be a letter from a previously unknown apostle - who just happens to be female. However, the situation moves from being curiously exciting to chillingly perilous as the archaeologist is murdered and Mary and Sherlock's home is ransacked. Given the possible implications of the fragment, the list of suspects and motives seems endless.

Felt abridged

I kept feeling like I had missed something while listening to this book. Also, the narrator was very dry.

Narration....oh dear.

I've simultaneously been listening to the complete works of Sherlock Holmes narrated by Stephen Frye. His character, personality, voices are heads above the narration in this. Too bad because the story is so good.
