A Letter of Mary,
This review is from: A Letter of Mary (Mary Russell Mystery 3) (Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes) (Paperback)
The third Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes adventure.
The duo investigate the mysterious death of an elderly archaeologist - a friend from Mary's past.
Mary is still difficult to warm too, she prefers to dress in men's clothing, but when she has to go undercover as a sweet young thing, she is naturally a stunner. And, naturally she soon has to fend off the attentions of two men. Hard to know whether the author is having a joke here or that Mary is as up herself as she comes across.
Otherwise this is a little dry with an unmemorable mystery. However, where this does score is the emotional impact of the death on Mary which lifts this out of what otherwise seems to be just an ego-trip.
