Customer Review

on 13 January 2001
Leave all your preconceptions behind if you are a Conan Doyle fan and enter Laurie King's interpretation of Sherlock Holmes' new career as partner to Mary Russell. This is a superb series of novels to which I hesitate to refer to as pastiche. Each novel in the series, of which THE MOOR is the fourth, is self contained and absorbs the reader immediately. Having first discovered King through her modern day series of novels featuring Kate Martinelli, I hesitated before staring the Russell/Holmes serires, having not been a reader of the ouvre. However, hooked from the beginning, I can thoroughly recommend both the series, which begins with THE BEEKEEPERS APPRENTICE, and THE MOOR in particular, which bears homage to Coan Doyles' work, but also bears the singularly successful hallmark of Laurie King. Recognition is highly deserved. This is one of the USA's best kept secrets and past titles are already difficult to come by in their UK editions. If you like genuine mystery with wonderful prose and story-telling - discover now.
