DREAMING SPIES A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes

by | Read by Jenny Sterlin

Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Narrator Jenny Sterlin is required to be nimble of tongue as Sherlock Holmes’s wife, Mary Russell, journeys from Oxford to Japan and back to expose a blackmailer and save the honor of Japan’s future emperor. With a variety of native Japanese and English speakers with various accents in conversation together, some voices tread close to clichés, but every one precisely fits author Laurie King’s descriptions—whether it’s the vaguely Australian-sounding crew member, the arrogant aristocratic youth, or the Japanese. The plot is intricate, with myriad details of Japanese culture, a portrait of shipboard life, and fascinating details on Oxford’s Bodleian Library.
