Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, have stirred the wrath of a murderous secret organization bent on infiltrating the government. Now they are separated and on the run, wanted by the police, and pursued across the Continent by a ruthless enemy with limitless resources and powerful connections.

Unstoppable together, Russell and Holmes will have to survive this time apart, maintaining contact only by means of coded messages and cryptic notes. But has the couple made a fatal mistake by separating, making themselves easier targets for the shadowy government agents sent to silence them?

A hermit with a mysterious past and a beautiful young female doctor with a secret, a cruelly scarred flyer and an obsessed man of the cloth: Everyone Russell and Holmes meet could either speed their safe reunion or betray them to their enemies—in the most complex, shocking, and deeply personal case of their career.

A suspenseful read

By sgkritzik
Riveting stories, interesting characters, and a further glimpse into the Holmes family made this a fun read. One of the best by Laurie King.

Bought all the books I could, in this series, by this author. Can't say how pleased I am. Excellent read.

Four Stars

Really enjoyed this series. Recovering from surgery and these are engaging but not demanding reading.

Another plus.

Every Laurie R. King book is a winner.

Continues to be Great

 on May 17, 2010
By Mark W. Tiedemann
Having just finished this novel, I confess that the Mary Russell series has been one of the great pleasures of the past few years for me. First-rate storytelling, good writing, well-researched. At so many points these could be overdone, oversentimentalized, botched. Turning other fictional characters into "real" people for purposes of these novels (Peter Whimsy, Kim, etc) would in lesser hands be a recipe for disaster.

All-time Favorite

Laurie King's Mary Russell series has been an all-time favorite of mine from its inception. I read them again every few years.

Sherlock and Russell Never Disappoint

Sherlock and Mary find themselves wrapping up the events that had earlier taken them to Scotland and a reunification with Sherlock's son and granddaughter. In the process they uncover a plot to unseat Mycroft and the British government. Superb storyline.
