Publisher's Summary

Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one murky riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door...literally. It's a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But it's not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est.

A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer, or has the murderer caught them?

    "Wonderfully poignent and beautifully written"

    I am listening to these in order and am having a wonderful time with them. The author brings us back in time so deftly that we forget she is not writing herself from the early 20th century. Her research and knowledge of the history of that time as well as her theological references make me feel as though I'm listening to a real Oxford scholar from 1920. I don't mind that this is not fast paced or heavy on action, it relies instead on well defined characters and beautifully painted landscapes that, surprisingly, do not get long or boring.
    I enjoy the reader as much as the stories themselves but will agree with another review that complained the Canadian accent sounded very off, more like a woman raised in Texas, but that is minor compared to the overall reading of it which I loved. I'm looking forward to the next one and will be sorry when I've completed the series.

    "Couldn't turn it off!"

    One of the best audio books I've heard. If you like Holmes, and female heroines, this is for you!

    "Lengthy"

    I loved other books by this author, but with regard to this book, the combination of a very slow reader who emphasized what seemed like every other word, and the detail into which the author went regarding the life and times of the setting, just made for a long read.

    "Pleased with this one"

    I am a fan of the Mary Russell books and was very pleased with this one. It follows characters introduced in O Jerusalem. I highly reccommend it.

    "Never liked Sherlock before this..."
    If you could sum up Justice Hall in three words, what would they be?

    Mary Russell Shines!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Mary Russell character adds such superb depth to what could be just another English murder mystery series. Laurie H. King crafted the Mary Russell character so she doesn't always follow the rules of the times. Her partnership with Holmes and her own sharp mind allows her to move through the world in genius disguises. The character is bigger than live, tough, independent and as smart as he. What could be better?


    Any additional comments?

    The series is full of wonderful history, it is truly riveting, and Jenny Sterlin is an amazing performer. Cudos to all involved!!!

    Many suspects, incredible setting and globe-trotting to Canada. It's Russell and Holmes with some wonderful new friends. You won't be sorry!

    "Great Listen!"

    I think that after The Beekeeper's Apprentice this is my next favorite Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes book by far! The story is very interesting and Jenny Sterlin, as always, does a fantastic job!

    I never would have guessed where this book was headed or what the twist and turns there were going to be, but that's what made it so interesting and compelling. If you are a fan of the other Mary Russell/Sherlock Homes books, then I full-heartedly recommend this book! There is enough interaction between the two main character, that remind you of the other stories before, with a great mix of new/old character that ultimately make for a fantastic read/listen!

    "A favorite"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Justice Hall to be better than the print version?

    Equally good

    I love, love, love Justice Hall and O Jerusalem. I just listened to them back to back and will listen again and again.
