    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King enjoys immense popularity and a resounding chorus of critical acclaim for her exquisite mysteries. The God of the Hive continues the thread King began in The Language of Bees, in which Mary Russell and her famous husband, Sherlock Holmes, face trouble with Scotland Yard and the deadliest of adversaries.

    connie says: "Imaginative and engrossing listen"
    "the latest in the Russell/Holmes"
    Overall

    This is the continuation of the 9th book, "The Language of Bees". In both "Language of Bees" and "God of the Hive", Holmes' character is flatter, more distant and angry than he has been in many of the books. Why? It is the verbal discussions and relationship between Holmes and Russell that give the series depth. It is missing in this book. In addition,the Goodman character becomes more and more bizarre as the book goes on. It seems like he is there for comedy relief which, in my opinion doesn't work well. The story is interesting, but I don't think that King did the character development justice. It definitely does not have the depth of "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" which remains the best of the series.
