Been adding reviews to the books in the Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series on Goodreads and Edelweiss and can as well add them to my blogs. Been a while since I read the books, but most of the books in this series have I read so many times I can the storylines quite well. The year is 1923, M...

This is absolutely my most favorite series ever! Every book in the series is fantastic-5 star! If you like Sherlock Holmes, you have to read this pastiche. It's the best one I've read yet.

This was the first Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes book I ever read, and of those first three I have read, this is still my favorite.
