rating: 5 of 5 stars
This story starts 24 hours after the last book in the series, The Moor ended, but we revisit characters from an earlier book that I haven't read yet.
These books are all so exciting I have a hard time putting them down. In this installment Mary Russell and her husband Sherlock Holmes head to an old friends estate to try and persuade his cousin to go back to Palestine with him and leave the Earldom to the next generation. You quickly realize all is not as it seems as "accidents" soon take on a sinister tone.
Murder, intrigue, fake heirs, and King Tut fancy dress balls all make a fascinating mystery.
