if you like Russell as theologian

and like to imaginitvely explore the geography (physical and spiritual) of the holy land circa 1919, then you will love this.

I agree with other reviewers that this is not for those who want a fast-paced, straight forward mystery.

I love the narration; in fact, I don't think I'd enjoy reading this series. But I can see that the very distinctive style is one that listeners will either love or hate, especially if they discovered this series first in print.

A bonus: This fiction can actually help you better understand the Middle East and the aftermath of WWI - It sent me to listening to "Paris 1919" once I'd finished.

O Jerusalem! What fun!

Funny, witty and lots of thrills with Mary Russell and her favorite detective. A wonderful installment in Laurie R. King's Sherlock Holmes influenced series. As always, the narrator is a delight. All 30 voices of her!
