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?

    "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!

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

    "Swept Away"

    The details of the Hall, the People who inhabit it and whom it inhabits along with the tensions and twists of the story make this an enjoyable listen. Outstanding narration/storytelling.

    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!

    If you could sum up Justice Hall in three words, what would they be?

    Made me cry!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Justice Hall?

    Gabriel writing in his journal! Broke my heart!


    Have you listened to any of Jenny Sterlin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jenny makes all the characters come to life. None of them sound the same, they all have their own personalitites.

    Story
    "Adventure and the Ravages of the Great War"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The diary of the young soldier and his descriptions of the devastation and deprivation of the Great War.


    Any additional comments?

    Another fantastic adventure of Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes. Seemingly unevenly matched, Mary is quite a bit younger than her husband, interested in theology, and rich as can be. However, they are a match, mind to mind, wit to wit, and adventurous spirit to adventurous spirit.

    In this sixth volume, Mary and Holmes are invited to Justic Hall. A familiar stranger visits them and invites them to the home of the Duke of Beauville, Justice Hall. A very prominent family guided by duty, honor, and justice. The current duke was called back from the mysterious life he was living after the sudden death of his brother. His brother's heir had died during the Great War.

    The identity of the current Duke is revealed (this is not a spoiler) as the Muslim travelers Russell and Holmes had encountered in the previous book. A reluctant heir with no children, they are to investigate a claimant to the dukedom. Before long, greater mysteries present themselves including the death of the young soldier, an attempted murder, and at least two suspects with power and money wishing for more.

    This is another grand adventure with amazing depth of detail and description, a rousing adventure, edge of the seat suspsence, and a deeply moving picture of a soldier's life in the trenches.

    I listened to the audiobook and the narrator, again, does a fantastic job. She a vibrant storyteller.
