Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

The latest in King's acclaimed series about an older Sherlock Holmes and his young, superbly talented wife, Mary Russell, takes us to India. Disguised as a wandering magician and assistant, Holmes and Russell search for English spy Kimball O'Hara--Rudyard Kipling's Kim--who has gone missing and is feared killed. The hint of gravel in Sterlin's crisp English voice perfectly matches Mary Russell's bristly independent narrative voice, which dominates this enjoyable tale. Sterlin also offers a wonderfully considered Holmes who is straight from Conan Doyle's description--smooth with an upper-class, slightly nasal hint of emotional distance. In addition, Sterlin has fun with a range of Indian accents from prince to beggar. And her pacing is superb; it enlivens the text without dominating it. A.C.S.
