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.

    "Another Excellent Choice"

    This, like the previous books of the series, is an excellent choice in audio books. The narrarator is highly expressive and seems to have an fine sense of the characters. The series in general is written discriptively, and for some may seem slow, but I have found them to be captivating. I highly recommend this series.

    "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.

    Story
    "Holmes and Russell take a "Vacation ""

    In the middle of one of their early cases, Holmes and Russell must get out of England until things cool off a bit. They end up walking all of Palestine. If you enjoy the series, listen to this one, but it's not a must. As always I love the narration but this story was long and wandered aimlessly in spots.

    "Very satisfying"

    This is my favorite story of all the Mary Russell missives. King keeps the story as intetesting and fresh as one could hope. Her strong characters carry the story and make the improbable quite possible indeed.

    I am very pleased to once again have Ms Sterlin bring the characters to Audible!

    Thank you, Ms King, thank you, Ms Sterlin, and thank you, Audible. You have provided me with many hours of pure enjoyment.

    "Excellent"

    My only complaint about this book would be that the story is out of order. Other than that it is an excellent story with an excellent narrator.

    "This audio series just keeps getting better"

    My review of the first book highlighted the great story and slightly flawed recording; because the stories are so good, I kept with them, and I am so glad I have. The narration keeps getting better, and the stories themselves do too. I recommend for anyone who enjoys the Mary Russell series or Holmes fans that aren't strict about canon.

    "My favorite of the Mary Russel / Sherlock Holmes"

    This is is favorite of the Mary Russel/Sherlock Holmes stories. I thoroughly enjoyed Jenny Sterlin's ability to come up with all the different voices and accents. I've always liked the Holmes series and was hooked on Laurie King's from the first page of the first book.

    I've read all of King's series on Holmes and now have the joy of getting to listen to them! Thank you!
