Editorial Reviews

Review

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
