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.

Listener Opinions

    " This was not my favorite of the series so far. I felt it got bogged down with too much detailed descriptions of Justice Hall and took too long to actually get into any plot. That said, the military "mystery" was somewhat interesting, if a little anemic, and the military journal and letters were beautiful and moving. "

    " In this story in the Mary Russell series, we revisit two characters from the previous book, which I really liked. Seeing them in a different setting was intriguing, and the plot kept moving. "

    " Downright boring! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lisa | 1/25/2014

    " As with all the Mary Russell - Sherlock Holmes books I've read, I simply immerse myself in the story and can't wait to start the next in the series. I must pace myself and read something else in between. I'm afraid I'll become so engrossed in their escapades if I read them back to back that I'll get in trouble...no cooking, cleaning or being social. "
