Publisher's Summary

In the eerie wasteland of Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes summons his devoted wife and partner, Mary Russell, from her studies at Oxford to aid the investigation of a death and some disturbing phenomena of a decidedly supernatural origin. Through the mists of the moor there have been sightings of a spectral coach made of bones carrying a woman long-ago accused of murdering her husband - and of a hound with a single glowing eye.

Returning to the scene of one of his most celebrated cases, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes and Russell investigate a mystery darker and more unforgiving than the moors themselves.

    "The best series"

    I like Sherlock Holmes better via King than Conan- Doyle!
    Mary Russell is a wonderful strong female protagonist. The best series in a long time!

    "******************"
    If you could sum up The Moor: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes in three words, what would they be?

    I loved this story. First off, I have to say that Jenny Sterlin is the best narrator I've ever had the chance to listen to. She is at her absolute best in this novel. Honestly, I couldn't ask for more and would even go as far as to buy books just because she is reading them....

    With all that aside the story is really great. It has a good, involved plot that pulls you along. I wouldn't go as far as to say there was suspense at every turn, but it was still a great story. I have listened to this three times back to back. I just can't seem to get enough.

    The tales use of Hound of the Baskervilles as a backstory really connects it to the best of Conan Doyle as well.

    The characters are wonderful,
    The story is well thought out and rich,
    Jenny is not just a narrator here, but the breathing equivalent of Mary Russell which makes it seem more like she is recalling the past rather than reading a book. Her different accents are incredible, my favorite parts.

    I can't think of any way to improve things,,, even the length was spot on


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Too difficult to pick just one


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Sherlock and Mary first interact with an older resident of the moor, and he's called by his nickname.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. It was one I wanted to listen to, but also wanted to savor as long as possible to keep it from ending.

    "Great story and narration"

    The narrator does an amazing job. She does the male and female voices perfectly as well as the accents. Love the series.

    "Love this series"

    Laurie R. King is such a fantastic writer. You can transport yourself to Dartmoor as you read this book. And the history of Sabine Baring-Gould is wonderful.

    "An Excellent Entry"

    This installment of the Mary Russell series will not disappoint fans. I thought the story moved along at a quicker pace than previous installments with a little less description and a
    lot more focus on the characters. You don't guess the solution to the case until Mary and Holmes spell it out....very entertaining.

    "Can't take the narrator anymore"
    What made the experience of listening to The Moor: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes the most enjoyable?

    The story is great and writing quite good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the setting and the references to WW1.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She uses the most annoying voice for Holmes which makes it hard to keep going.
    She also does the worst accents I've ever heard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had to break it up because of the annoying narration.

    "Interesting series"

    This series is quite interesting. Holmes from the perspective of his much younger partner and wife. The narrator is quite good.

    Story
    "Laurie R. King has executed another 5 star tale!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend not only this book, but the entire series of Holmes and Russel by Laurie R. King. She masterfully continues on the building blocks of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. It is believable, every one of her extensions are believable.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dreaming of Spies! Laurie R. King, continuing with Holmes and Russell, new venue, new plot, can't wait!


    What three words best describe Jenny Sterlin’s performance?

    Jenny Sterlin is STERLING! PERFECT: TIMING, TONE, ACCENT


    Was The Moor: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes worth the listening time?

    Meaning it could have taken TOO LONG? Hardly. It was perfect, but I feel like I always want to listen longer to all of Laurie R. King, narrated by Jenny Sterlin.


    Any additional comments?

    Holmes purists often don't think there can be any author of the adventures, or any characters except the original, take a chance on Holmes and Russell from Laurie R. King. They are real, they are true to character, and the adventures are continuing with the accuracy from the original. Continue to enjoy Holmes in his second detective life.

    "I'm completely addicted..."

    WOW! I started with the Beekeeper's Apprentice and in short order, I'm on #4 in this series. Jenny Sterlin is incredible as the narrator. I haven't looked to see if she narrates all the rest of these books, but I hope so. I love Holmes & Russell - together!
