Only hours after
Holmes and Russell return from solving one riddle on the moor, another knocks
on their front door … literally.
It’s a mystery that
begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amid scandalous
rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But it’s not until Holmes and
Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden
modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family
motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est: “Righteousness is my strength.”
A trail of ominous
clues leads Holmes and Russell from an English hamlet to fashionable Paris to
the wild prairie of the New World. But as the moment of reckoning approaches,
will justice be done—or have they been lured straight into an elusive killer’s
perfectly baited trap?
With her debut, A Grave Talent, Laurie R. King
became the first novelist since Patricia Cornwell to win prizes for Best First
Crime Novel on both sides of the Atlantic. Few authors dare to touch the
classic canon of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, but in this charming and
suspenseful series, Edgar Award winner King succeeds with triumphant
originality. Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes are now on their sixth thrilling
outing together. Download and start listening now!
