This really was a brilliant read! I love how King intertwines different fictional characters! Her knowledge of the times, lifestyles, cultures and literature is really amazing. Following Holmes and Russel through this adventure in India was phenomenal. Another great story in this worthy and though-provoking series!
Loved this book! A rip-roaring adventure taking Russell & Holmes to India on another assignment from Mycroft. All is not what it seems, as usual, and it is up to them with a few others to help figure out and solve the "little problem." One of those, "I couldn't put it down" books. Have already started the next in the series "Locked Rooms"
"A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes."
This is the 2nd Mary Russell- Sherlock Holmes book I read. Found it darker and more agitated than The Bee Keeper's Apprentice. But if you are a fan of this series, it is a must-read.
My favorite literary character, Kipling's 'Kim,' appears in "The Game." Still, I didn't think this novel was a good as other in the series.
Brank new, her latest. I really like this take on the Sherlock Holmes legend. An exciting read.
