A Grand Conceit, A Deligntful Listen
The Mary Russel series is a grand conceit that extends the Sherlock Holmes character into middle age where he first mentors then partners with and finally marries Ms. Mary Russell. She is thoroughly competent and very emancipated. Each story is told from Russell's point of view. The novelty of the stories is the way she includes historical characters both real and literary. In this seventh of the series Laurie R. King introduces Rudyard Kipling's Kim as an older British spy in 1924 India who has an adolescent son. The story plot is built around a mythical Indian prince who is up to no good. It was a delightful listen.

I am addicted
Hard to believe this one was better than the last one, but it was. I listen on 1.25 speed, which is perfect. Excellent narration, to say the least, and the characters and story was intriguing and fascinating. How much research goes into a book like this.
On to the next in the series. I can't stop!!!
