    Story
    (1112)

    In 1914, a spirited American girl named Mary Russell meets a retired Sherlock Holmes in the English countryside. Instantly realizing that Mary is gifted with astonishing deductive powers, the Great Detective emerges from retirement to join her as she tracks down a fiendish assassin.

    Marie-Elizabeth Finamore says: "Best of British restraint"
    "Put your thinking cap on."
    Overall

    Dump all previous knowledge of Sherlock Holmes from your memory and be tantalized anew with this introduction to an incredibly intelligent, analytical man as he introduces an equally intelligent and unimpressed teenaged Mary Russell to his world. Is it possible that the retired (and bored) Sherlock Holmes still has some kick in his stride? Is it possible that young Mary, fighting personal demons and an unwanted guardian aunt, could confront Holmes with a developing alter ego and partner? Be captivated as Holmes and Russell grow into a partnership rife with mental challenge, acute observation, physical danger, and mystery, mystery, mystery. While each of Laurie R. King's Holmes/Russell novels may be read independently, I look forward to the time that they are all recorded for audible so that I may listen as their partnership develops and matures.
    This is a terrific listen with a narrator/performer of sensitive interpretation, emotion and talent.
