For years now, readers of the Russell Memoirs have wondered about the tantalizing mentions of Japan. Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes had spent three weeks there, between India (The Game) and San Francisco (Locked Rooms). The time has finally come to tell that story.
It is 1925, and Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes arrive home to find...a stone. A stone with a name, which they last saw in the Tokyo garden of the future emperor of Japan. It is the first indication that the investigation they did for him in 1924 might not be as...complete as they had thought. In Japan there were spies, in Oxford there are dreams. In both places there is a small, dark-haired woman and danger.
"Narrator Jenny Sterlin is required to be nimble of tongue as Sherlock Holmes's wife, Mary Russell, journeys from Oxford to Japan and back to expose a blackmailer and save the honor of Japan's future emperor." (AudioFile)

King & Sterlin: A Team We Can Count On
Haiku and Holmes - A Fine Brew
Jenny Sterlin has always been the voice of Mary Russell for me. It's the voice I heard in my head long before I listened to my first LR King via Audible.
Writing that evokes place and time and remains lyrical and clean.
Russell and Holmes come to life through her voice.
I very nearly did listen to it in all one sitting. Knitted most of a sweater in fact. Will listen again beginning tomorrow.
Laurie R. King writes good stores and does meticulous research. This book did not disappoint and I think it's going to be my #2 LRK favorite right behind O Jerusalem
