Dreaming Spies (Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes # 13)
Dreaming Spies - Laurie R. King

Russell with her Holmes,

New Case comes with great promise.

Wonder what's in store?


I've detailed elsewhere what Laurie R. King's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell series means to me. Every time a new book is announced, some of my worst impatience sets in. Finally, it arrives in my hands and I'm teleported back to a time and characters I've come to care greatly about.


At long last we learn of their time spent in Japan, which took place between The Game and Locked Rooms. As with all of King's books in this series, I found myself transported to 1920s Japan as we walked it's roads, traveled in it's packed trains, and experienced new customs. While much of the elements were known to me, her writing once again brought it to life. But she also did what I'd longed for, showed us some of Oxford.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes # 1) [Audible Version] - This just makes the book better!
Beekeeper's Apprentice (Mary Russell Mystery) - Laurie R. King

Please check out my review of the book itself here.


I have read this book more times then I care to count. I have listened to it at least twice before this. However, the library that had the CASSETTE TAPES of this is several moves away and so I purchased this copy with my new Audible account as I've longed to listen to it again. That it also fits three of this year's challenges is an added bonus!


While nothing beats a physical book in your hands, there are some that I love to listen to as much as read. The reasons for this are different for each book but for one; the narrator. The reader, performer, or narrator (depending on the book) has to bring something that I simply can't get from the text. Often the ones I like the most are the ones that change my view of a character by how they present them.
