    I started reading this series loving them, but I have to say they are getting more and more disappointing. The characters are still the highlight, but King is having a worse and worse time with plots - this one felt so unresolved that I literally checked to see if there had been pages ripped out to ...

    Fifth in order of publication in the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series, the story line actually fits into the latter part of the debut novel in the series, The Beekeeper s Apprentice.[return][return]Holmes and the 19 year old Russell have fled for their lives from England to British-occupied Pales...

    What I'm beginning to learn about this series is that, while King has based these books on Sherlock Holmes, the series itself is in Mary Russell's voice and is about her.

It is entirely easy to simply lose interest in the whole thing if the individual novels are unable to sustain interest, or the reader simply lacks the stamina to see the whole thing through fr...

    This was a bit difficult to get into initially, because the setting - both time and place - are pretty foreign to me. I'm very ill-educated on the struggles that have been going on in the Middle East in general and Jerusalem specifically for thousands of years, and I'm aware of it.However, King did ...

    Man. I reaaaaly had to slog through this one. I mean, REALLY. I think the last 25 pages or so I just barely skimmed, just enough to get the point so that I wouldn't feel like I'd totally wasted my time. This was definitely my least favorite of the Russell/Holmes series so far. Clearly sort of an exc...

    Excellent. Once again Laurie King creates the sense of "being there". In this case, "there" is Palestine in 1919. Not only does she seem to get the history right, but also the geography, the sociology and the feel and smell of the Middle east.Another good tale, well told....
