The Lady Sherlock series has become a favorite one for me since I read book two, A CONSPIRACY IN BELGRAVIA last year. Since then have I devoured the first book A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN and now the latest in the series, THE HOLLOW OF FEAR. It may be prudent to start with the first book to get the backstory of the characters and events, as well as because this book is connected to the story in A CONSPIRACY IN BELGRAVIA.

I started this series a while ago and then discovered I’d waited long enough for three more installments to be published! Where was I and why didn’t I catch on sooner? So, I have deliciously and with great abandonment read three in a row. The fourth should come in tomorrow and I’m going to get right to it. Like candy, only better. ( )

3.5 stars rounded up. This one had some slower parts, multiple long interviews and a lot of characters sitting around rehashing circumstances. And it bounced around in time more than the others, which on one hand gave us the opportunity to reexamine scenes in different contexts, but on the other was a little repetitive and felt like it was largely to keep us scrambling. Overall I think the main drawback was that it felt less like we were solving the case along with Holmes, and more like she was just slowly parsing out information to us when she got around to seeing fit. That we were purposely being kept in the dark and out of the loop.

All of that said though, it was still interesting and clever and I was engaged enough to want to keep reading. I especially enjoy this cast of characters, and feel invested in them. ( )

The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas is a 2018 Berkley publication.

This third installment in the ‘Lady Sherlock’ series gets even more interesting…

When Lord Ingram’s estranged wife turns up dead, naturally Scotland Yard considers him to be a prime suspect, and naturally Charlotte will try to discover who was the real murderer.

Wow! This was a very good episode in the series! The mystery wasn’t as difficult to follow as the last installment and some very stunning twists caught me off guard.

I loved all the developments, the very well-plotted story line, and the wonderful characterizations- but the dialogue in this installment was exceptional.

I loved the conversations that involved Inspector Treadles which prompted him to examine his own attitudes towards women and take a closer look at his relationship with his wife. Good stuff!

Charlotte’s costumes and disguises were also fabulous, and she gave me more than a few chuckles- such a great character!

The conclusion was a real stunner! Again- Wow! Did not see that coming!

I was hoping to have caught completely up with the series before the sixth book was released, but obviously, I am not going to make that deadline-

But- I’m still hoping to get caught up before the end of the year. As exciting as the series is, I won’t have any trouble finding motivation to achieve that goal!

Charlotte Holmes is still masquerading as Sherlock Holmes - well, not really masquerading. Charlotte pretends that she is helping Sherlock who is bedridden while actually she is the detective. However, in this case Charlotte actually takes on the persona of Sherlock's brother, Sherrinford Holmes to assist Lord Ingraham who is under suspicion for the death of his estranged wife after her body is found in his ice house.

I thought that this episode felt a bit too staged - the house party spoiled by a broken cistern, body placed in the ice house to be discovered by the staff, unknown pregnancy, misidentification.

Just a bit too many coincidences. ( )
