Laurie King supports and extends the Sherlockian Canon quite well in this latest Russell and Holmes episode. Holmes lineage and ancestry are the background for their investigation of a strange break-in and robbery attempt. Indian assailants trigger a need to examine certain aspects of Sherlock's early life particularly his relationship with Irene Adler. Should a definitive biograph of Holmes be produced, Laurie King would be my choice for an author.

A woman wakes up in a place she doesn’t know. Nor does she know how she got there, nor even who she is. She appears to have been hurt and is wearing men’s clothes. She is able to get up and leave and follows a mute boy. Meantime, Sherlock Holmes, in Morocco, is looking for his wife, Mary Russell. She was there to shoot a film(?) and has disappeared.

I enjoyed the book more when it focused on Mary and the amnesia. I wasn’t as interested in what was happening in Morocco, nor in Holmes and what he was up to. Oh, near the end got a bit more interesting, as well. A bit of tension/suspense at that point made it a bit better. Overall, though, I’m not a fan. I think I picked up this book in a Little Free Library, not realizing it was #12 in a series; when I learned that, I did back up to read the first in the series (I don’t believe I was super-excited about it, either, but still wanted to read this one, anyway).… (más)

I just don't get tired of these books -- I love how King tells a story, and I love all the historical details that really seat those stories in a time and place. Were there far-fetched moments? Yes. Was there some unnecessary complications? Also yes. And -- and more time with Mary Russell and this Sherlock Holmes, and the South of France between the wars, and the extraordinary art scene, and an intrepid explorer, and a wonderful re-imagining of an origin story, and more details and color than I could hope to expect. Delightful.

Sherlock Holmes fanfic. Entertaining. I seem to remember a few bits toward the beginning that were too embarrassingly Mary Sue to read, but it settles down after a hundred or so pages. Interesting approach to story-telling: the speed of events changes wildly throughout the book---but very true to what it's supposed to be, which is a memoir.
