Definitely. Expertly read, familiar interpretation, high quality emotion rendered.
Mary Russel, of course. Witty, dependable without being boring, graceful in the middle of unbeatable odds
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.
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!
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.
Touching. Human. Positive.
Ave Maria. She is close to her emotions and lively. She is not static but evolving throughout the story.
