Publisher's Summary

It is 1918. Coming out of retirement, an aging Sherlock Holmes travels to Palestine with his 19-year-old partner, Mary Russell. There, disguised as ragged Bedouins, they embark on a dangerous mission. If they fail, the holy city goes up in flames.

With her unerring flair for the dramatic, Laurie R. King packs this novel with bloodcurdling adventure, clever disguises, and layers of intrigue. Jenny Sterlin's superb voicing of the prickly Holmes and the fiercely intelligent Russell captures every nuance of their unconventional relationship.

    "Great Book -- SLOOOW Narration"

    I've read all the books in this series -- but have only listened to two others on audio. I loved them. This is my favorite book of the series, full of exotic adventure and really good fun. So why does the narrator read it as if it is the phone book? Could she read more slooowly? I doubt it. The long pauses make. the. story. drag. painfully. I was very disappointed. Now I'm wondering if I want to take a chance and purchase more of the series on audio. Such a shame. (Also -- her Arab accent sounds like bad Russian -- 'think-king.' A little effort on this would have helped.) I'm only halfway through the book and it's putting me to sleep. The three stars are for the story -- 0 for the narrator.

    This is the number of years ago soliciting. Just listen to it on audible and less it even more. Thank you Laurie!

    "It's a Good Installment"

    I know there were some who said one could skip this installment as it was s bit of a prequel but I differ there. The story is good, the character development is entertaining and the narration is first rate. If you enjoy this series, you will enjoy this book. Go ahead and give it a lot stem.

    "Skip this One"

    Dull and Tedious. A true disappointment after the generally interesting earlier offerings by Ms. King.

    "Riveting"

    I KNOW this is fiction, but I didn't really BELIEVE it was when listening to it. The historical and geographical material King includes is precisely enough to add to believability without making it seem like a textbook. The characters are dynamic and engaging and the plot is well-constructed. This is the best book in the Mary Russell series so far and I am eager to start the next one. The narrator does an excellent job differentiating the characters and I am convinced this is better listened to than read. Highly recommended to both history and mystery enthusiasts.

    "Good History Lesson"

    Interesting characters, good story. Would have liked a bit more history of Israel and Palestine.
    Recommend for any interest in Russell - Holmes story.

    "Great presentation"

    The story is told well and kept my interest to the end. The author was very knowledgeable about middle eastern events in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    love her talent...easy to follow and feels like you are there watching every move she makes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes

    I really like this series. The descriptions of people, places, and things are truly beautiful, plus, it's Holmes and Russell. I've enjoyed these books very much.
