Reviews

Praise for The Murder of Mary Russell "Leaping narrative energy has always been a hallmark of this series, and it reaches something of a peak in this latest volume. . . . The lean momentum of the story never falters. . . . It's a stunning prolonged feat of storytelling, and it succeeds in making The Murder of Mary Russell the best installment so far in an excellent series."--The Christian Science Monitor "[A] sharp, inventive and rewarding series."--The Seattle Times "Delightful . . . a triumph of plotting . . . Fans, always hungry to know more personal details about [Laurie R.] King's iteration of Sherlock Holmes and his world, will get a few more delicious tidbits this time around."--Booklist (starred review) "Not only a high point in King's long-running series, but a compelling demonstration of the ways inventive writers can continue to breathe new life into the Holmes-ian mythology . . . Both Holmes and Russell will have a chance to shine; in fact, the case achieves a rare balance between Holmes, Russell, and the mystery they've been set."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Whip-smart, suspenseful and intricately plotted, The Murder of Mary Russell shines a brilliant light on an often overlooked aspect of the Sherlock Holmes universe."--Shelf Awareness "A tantalizing tale of deception and misdirection for [Laurie R. King's] readers' delight."--LibraryReads (Top Ten Pick) Praise for the award-winning novels of Laurie R. King "The great marvel of King's series is that she's managed to preserve the integrity of Holmes's character and yet somehow conjure up a woman astute, edgy, and compelling enough to be the partner of his mind as well as his heart."--The Washington Post Book World "The most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today."--Lee Child "A lively adventure in the very best of intellectual company."--The New York Times "Erudite, fascinating . . . by all odds the most successful re-creation of the famous inhabitant of 221B Baker Street ever attempted."--Houston Chronicle "Intricate clockworks, wheels within wheels."--Booklist (starred review) "Imaginative and subtle."--The Seattle Times "Impossible to put down."--Romantic Times "Remarkably beguiling."--The Boston Globe Praise for "The Murder of Mary Russell" Leaping narrative energy has always been a hallmark of this series, and it reaches something of a peak in this latest volume.. . .
