Publisher's Summary

One of the preeminent figures in the realm of mystery fiction, New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King is perhaps most widely celebrated for her works featuring the amiable, if often contentious, partnership between Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. From the collection Mary Russell's War, "Stately Holmes" delivers the author's signature blend of narrative mastery and historical detail while shining light on previously unexplored corners of the Russell-Holmes universe. Laurie R. King blends her long-running brand of crime fiction with historical treats and narrative sleight of hand.

Trivial and obvious. A disappointing installment

Unfortunately this series has been going downhill for years and this is a trivial addition to the Russell/Holmes collection. Jenny Sterlin remains a fantastic narrator which is the only reason I bothered to finish it. I haven't been able to make it through the more recent (longer) ones.

A fun little Christmas tale

The story made reference to some past adventures. I now feel the need to go back and reread them.
