Laurie R King's Mary Russell books are delightful. This book is definitely the eighth book in a series. Read "The Bee Keeper's Apprentice" first and get caught up in how Russell and Holmes built their partnership. Mary Russell is an intelligent young woman who has "grown-up" throughout the series. Each book is different and enjoyable for different reasons.
I was intrigued by the American vs. British perspective. Jenny Sterlin's vocal portrayal of Holmes matches the image I have of him from his other biographer -- Watson through his literary agent, Conan Doyle.
Sit back and enjoy twist after twist. I certainly could not have predicted the resolution of Russell's past. Who can you trust when you are meeting people?
