In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes--and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern twentieth-century woman proves a deft protegee and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective. But even in their first case together, the pair face a truly cunning adversary who will stop at nothing to put an end to their partnership.

“Gorgeous, glorious gems!”

This is a gentle homage to Conan Doyle's creation, however, even though Holmes is a big part of the story, it isn't really about him. It's about Mary, and yay for that! Mary rocks! she's strong,... More

“Step aside Holmes, there's a new detective in town”

In my store I am known for my love of historical crime with a 30's edge, and so when my colleague gave up on this book, she knew who to give it too. And thank god she did!

Imagine if you will, a precocious 15... More
