In The Beekeeper's Apprentice, Laurie R. King came up with a completely original story that had Sherlock Holmes as one of its principal characters but was in no way part of the Holmes canon. The focus of that book was a young woman, Mary Russell. Now in A Monstrous Regiment of Women, Mary Russell's adventures as a student of the famous detective continue. A series of murders claims members of a strange suffrage organization's wealthy young female volunteers, and Mary, with Holmes in the background, investigates, little knowing what danger she personally faces.
Laurie R. King is also the author of the Edgar Award-winning novel A Grave Talent. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mystery plays a secondary role in the book as does Holmes. When the sinister actions come into the story, I found them to be predictable. I cannot say the same for Holmes. He did surprise me with an unexpected development.
I do like the Russell and Holmes characters as well as their interplay which helped me get beyond the "elementary" aspects of the plot.
Miss King did provide me with a challenge to my vocabulary knowledge. I referenced my dictionary more times while reading this book than any other book I have read in recent memory.
The skill, the suspense, and the interaction of Holmes and Russell keeps one totally engaged and wondering how their inimitable skills and intuitive sensibilities will serve them in lives filled with danger and challenges.
Laurie King's writing fills me with wonder; she IS Holmes and Russell! Smart lady!
