    In a strange room in Morocco, Mary Russell is trying to solve a pressing mystery: Who am I? She has awakened with shadows in her mind, blood on her hands, and soldiers pounding on the door. Out in the hivelike streets, she discovers herself strangely adept in the skills of the underworld, escaping through alleys and rooftops, picking pockets and locks. She is clothed like a man, and armed only with her wits and a scrap of paper containing a mysterious Arabic phrase. Overhead, warplanes pass ominously north.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Garment of Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Definitely. Expertly read, familiar interpretation, high quality emotion rendered.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mary Russel, of course. Witty, dependable without being boring, graceful in the middle of unbeatable odds


    What about Jenny Sterlin and Robert Ian McKenzie ’s performance did you like?

    Both give a great performance, as always. I love the fact that the voices are never exaggerated, the emotions always well expressed without sounding unreal. Even the descriptive or historical parts keep you on your toes. You know they lead somewhere as suspense builds and the performers carry the tune to perfection. The characters are british yet easy to understand for those of us who are not.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A memorable Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russel adventure taking place within the rich tapestry of Morocco's ageless world of colorful power plays and subtle undertones!


    Any additional comments?

    After my deception with the last book, Pirate king, this one is up to my expectations for a good Laurie King. Could not go to sleep until I finished it... I didn't want it to end.

    Milk Glass Moon continues the life story of Ave Maria Mulligan MacChesney as she faces the challenges and changes of motherhood with her trademark humor and honesty. With twists as plentiful as those found on the holler roads of southwest Virginia, this story takes turns that will surprise and enthrall the reader. Milk Glass Moon is the story of a shifting mother-daughter relationship, of a daughter's first love and a mother's heartbreak, of an enduring marriage, and of a community faced with seismic change.

    Kathleen says: "Alas, the final book in the Stone Gap trilogy"
    "Easy read. Entertaining. Love that author reads it"

    If you could sum up Milk Glass Moon in three words, what would they be?

    Touching. Human. Positive.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ave Maria. She is close to her emotions and lively. She is not static but evolving throughout the story.
