that sparkles between the world-famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Mary,

Mary Magdalene was an apostle—an artifact certain to stir up a storm of
biblical proportions in the Christian establishment. When Ruskin is suddenly
killed in a tragic accident, Russell and Holmes find themselves on the trail of
a fiendishly clever murderer.
