review 1: I skipped from an earlier book in the series to this one because my lovely husband put this on my Kindle for me. It really made me want to go back and read O Jerusalem and whichever other books the Hazr men pop up in. Even without knowing how specifically Holmes, Russell, and the...

review 1: Definitely the weakest of this series thus far, unfortunately. There are so many elements that should have made this book great: Gilbert and Sullivan, the roaring 20s, silent movies... Sherlock Holmes! However, I was rather surprised to find myself utterly bored by the first hal...

review 1: This is the ninth of Laurie R. King's series of suspense novels about Mary Russell, a young protege of the retired detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes eventually marries her, and she becomes Holmes's partner and a skilled operative in her own right.The Russell stories are probably ...

review 1: Recapturing the vibrancy of an early work can sometimes be challenging, but I think this little vignette does it off quite well. It gave us an untold story that fit very nicely into the established timeline of this series. It also gave us a look into the mind of Sherlock Holmes...

review 1: This is very good. I love the description at the beginning of the story of what Mrs. Hudson thought about Holmes vacating 221B, her reaction to the new tenants, and how and why she ultimately chose to stay connected to that insufferable genius of a man. I think it would not be a ...

review 1: It's between 3 and 4 stars. There are some really good stories in here. I really liked Neil Gaiman's contribution, The Case of Death and Honey, which was actually the strongest story in here.The other ones that I liked were: You'd Better go in Disguise by Alan BradleyThe Men wi...

review 1: This is the sequel to The Language of Bees" and carries on literally where the previous book ended. Sort of an intricate story, narration is good - very good at times - but once again the last 50 pages or so disappointed me. Is Laurie King unable to finish her stories properly? I...

review 1: Well, this was a tough collection to judge and give a starred rating to. Some of the stories were wonderful and others not so great. Have to admit I didn't even finish a few (I listened to the audiobook and just hit next on my car's CD player). All in all it's difficult to give t...
