Great book in a great series,

This review is from: A Monstrous Regiment of Women (Mary Russell Mystery 2) (Paperback)
I've always loved the Holmes books, and this series is a great take on how things might have been several decades after his prime. I also like the fact that there is a feminine viewpoint to empathise with. Holmes fanatics may not approve, but I think the author has done a great job of reimagining the great detective with a female sidekick - Holmes is still all-knowing and a great teacher, but Mary really comes of age in this one. And I like the questioning of her feelings towards Holmes - their relationship is important but never detracts from the plot. Looking forward to the next.
