Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell mystery series sizzles with the intellectual and emotional energy that sparkles between the world-famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Mary, his young wife and partner. Together, they take on tantalizing cases that break new ground in crime detection.

It is 1923. Mary Russell and the retired Sherlock Holmes are enjoying the summer together on their Sussex estate when they are visited by an old friend, Miss Dorothy Ruskin, an archeologist just returned from Palestine. She leaves in their protection an ancient manuscript which seems to hint at the possibility that 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.

Brimming with political intrigue, theological arcana, and brilliant Holmesian deductions, this stunning mystery carries the two quick-witted sleuths through a maze of clues and cul-de-sacs.
