A Letter of Mary? Not so much.,
This review is from: A Letter of Mary: A Mary Russell Novel (Mary Russell Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
Although enjoyable, this novel wasn't quite what I was expecting. I was hoping that the novel would delve into the discovery of a 1st century papyrus scroll in much more detail than it did. As it were, it merely added a touch more mystery to this novel.
The book followed Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell's investigation of the murder of a friend of theirs.
Overall, I found the plot rather thin. However, the brief appearance of Watson in the story brought much more humour to the book. It was nice to see a much more mature view of Sherlock Holmes as well.
I did run across my most favourite quote of all times in this novel: "...as patient as a concert pianist attending a children's piano recital."
A quick read, but one I will not return to.
