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?

    "loved it"

    there is so much in this book : the impact of WWI, the strong and interesting female characters, the interplay of cultures, the characters of Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes, and the plot! I love Mary Russell for her clear headed intelligence and understanding. I'm just not ready to say goodbye - I'll have to listen to the next in the series. Jenny Sterlin is perfect as the narrator.

    "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.

    I joined Audible at it's inception, and I haven't read a book since! I am addicted to Audible.

    "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.

    "My favorite so far!"

    Creative, clever, and lots of fun. Great performance. I loved the characters leaping from one book seamlessly into a new plot.

    "Great!"

    First of all, I love this series and the narrator. This book in particular had a bit of a slow part in the middle but picked up the pace with more than a few twists and turns. I loved that it tied back to include previous characters.

    "Justice Hall"

    I really enjoyed this book! Reading O' Jerusalem before gives it the context it needs. You would miss a lot if you didn't read it.

    "Favorite so far. Wonderful!"

    My favorite in the series so far, and I didn't think that they could get better. Laurie King is a brilliant writer. Every word serves a purpose and furthers the story and the arc across books.
