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?

    "Two-time listen"

    I love Laurie King's Mary Russel series and this book is no exception. This book is beautifully narrated, well written, and fits in well with Doyle's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. I'm a huge fan!

    "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.

    "Great listen!"

    After The Beekeeper's Apprentice I was hooked and wanted more. Just be advised that there are other books in between Beekeeper and Justice Hall, and some important things happen that you may wish you'd found out in the "correct" order. The reader does a great job of capturing the different personalities - so good in fact that I went right to Locked Rooms after finishing JH. What great characters Ms. King has both created and made to live on. I think these books would make such fun movies (Liam Neson as Holmes and Kiera Knightly as Russell - that's who my mind conjures up). Enjoy!

    "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.
