    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Garment of Shadows the most enjoyable?

    It's an interesting story with Holmes and Russell embroiled in another critical international imbroglio. Toss in two of my favorite characters, Ali and Mahmoud Hazr, and you have a book as enjoyable as any in the series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The addition of Robert Ian Mackenzie as a narrator was the first major mistake in the series. I have all the books, I've listened to them repeatedly, and Jenny Sterlin IS the voice of Sherlock Holmes. She's one of a handful of female narrators who can do justice to male voices to the point you completely forget her gender. I loved all the previous books. I cannot say the same for this one. Please, please, don't do this again. As a matter of fact, if you re-release it with Jenny Sterlin as the sole narrator, I will happily buy that one too.
