A Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mystery #2
I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series that I’ve read, but this one I loved. Totally loved it.
It is 1921 and our hero, Mary Russell, has finished her undergraduate course at Oxford. She is also about to come into her inheritance. Her life on the brink of being totally her own. No longer a ward of her aunt’s; she will be able to live as she chooses. But how will she choose, and what does she want to do with her life? Will she pursue an academic career with her interest in theology? Or does her future lie with Holmes and the life of a detective?
