Publisher's Summary

With her debut novel, A Grave Talent, Laurie R. King became the first novelist since Patricia Cornwell to win prizes for Best First Crime Novel on both sides of the Atlantic. Few authors dare to touch the classic canon of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, but in this charming and suspenseful series, Edgar award-winner King succeeds with triumphant originality. Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, are now on their sixth thrilling outing together.

Recommended to anyone who actually likes series

Nearly didn't get this due to the previous reviews. Concluded they just didn't like the series in general. I really enjoyed this one and would recommend it - provided that you do like the series! Couldn't disagree more with other reviewers; didn't find the English upper class stuff anachronistic - it was after all set in 1924. I would, however, recommend it to be read/heard AFTER O Jerusalem (which I would in fact rate slightly lower than this one) because otherwise much of the premise of this story would be far less meaningful.

Couldn't finish it. Tedious and poorly narrated.

I have read and enjoyed three others in this series but couldn't finish this one. Never really got into the story as I found it so difficult to listen to. It's read as if it were poetry with emphasis and inflexion on almost every word.

Good but not the best King

Some parts of the story seemed so excessively descriptive, I ended up downloading the audiobook in order to speed progression. (I was reading the ebook before). However, the audiobook was read just as slowly as the story! I enjoyed it in the end. Thanks for another great Russell Holmes collaboration.
