It is 1921 and Mary Russell—Sherlock Holmes’ brilliant apprentice, now an Oxford graduate with a degree in theology—is on the verge of acquiring a sizable inheritance. Independent at last, with a passion for divinity and detective work, her most baffling mystery may now involve Holmes and the burgeoning of a deeper affection between herself and the retired detective. Russell's attentions turn to the New Temple of God and its leader, Margery Childe, a charismatic suffragette and a mystic, whose draw on the young theology scholar is irresistible. But when four bluestockings from the Temple turn up dead shortly after changing their wills, could sins of a capital nature be afoot? Holmes and Russell investigate, as their partnership takes a surprising turn.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The great marvel of King’s series is that she’s managed to preserve the integrity of Holmes’s character and yet somehow conjure up a woman astute, edgy, and compelling enough to be the partner of his mind and as well as his heart…Superb.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “As audacious as it is entertaining and moving…What gives Laurie R. King’s books such a rich and original texture is the character of Mary—totally believable in her own right, a tall and gangling orphan with a restless intellect and a great store of moral and physical courage.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Extraordinary…A delight.”

    Washington Times

    " Less Holmes, more Russell, which is good. More spirituality, less action, which is okay. More malice, less comfort, which made for a tough read. And let's just say I don't love the end. "
