A Grave Talent - Laurie R. King

Another brilliant read, full of characters, places, and situations that it's a joy to get to know. While I love the Mary Russell character/stories best, this near-present-day urban mystery is beautifully written, elaborately detailed and philosophically complex. Reaching for the next already!

The Bones of Paris (Harris Stuyvesant) - Laurie R. King

Enjoyable 1920s mystery-thriller with a distinctly creepy vibe. Works in a large and colourful cast of American and Parisian artists of note. Complex, twisty plot with more of an edgy note than King's Holmes & Russell mysteries.

Touchstone - Sherlock & Holmes under another name ;D
Touchstone - Laurie R. King

Effective period spy thriller. It seems to pick up on elements of her longer Holmes/Russell series, with Watson & Holmes type traits spread among the cast and an emphasis on discussing the woman's role(s) in society at the time.

 

Enjoyable and unexpected. In the style of classic literature, it has perhaps a bit more description than modern readers will be used to.

The Murder of Mary Russell
The Murder of Mary Russell - Laurie R. King It's remarkable to come to the end of a series of 14 volumes (...at least, so far...) and feel wistful that there is not another on the shelf. I'll miss spending time in Mary Russell and Sherlock's world. Fingers crossed the story goes on!

Dreaming Spies: A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes
Dreaming Spies: A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes - Laurie R. King This series continues to impress; well researched and insightful historical fiction, spy thriller and mystery all in one. Enjoyed the depiction of 1920s Japan in this particular volume. Sad to be running out of books in the series; fortunately, I see there are others!
