Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Mary Russell and her husband, the aging Sherlock Holmes, face threats from various sources, including Scotland Yard, a dangerous faction within the British Government, and a religious fanatic. Until they can get to the bottom of it all, they need to spirit Holmes's son to safety and protect his granddaughter. Jenny Sterlin's narration of the latest installment in King’s stellar Mary Russell series is calm as she switches from the first-person narration of Russell to the third person while detailing the exploits of other characters. Sterlin rises to the challenge of differentiating various male characters, many with an upper-class British accent. Her presentation of King's obviously well-researched Holmes is authentic and creates an intriguing listen for both King's fans and devotees of Conan Doyle's famous detective.
