“Erudite, fascinating . . . the most successful re-creation of the famous inhabitant of 221B Baker Street ever attempted.” —The Houston Chronicle
“There's no resisting the appeal of Laurie R. King's thrillingly moody scenes of Dartmoor and her lovely evocations of its legends.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Dazzling may be the word to describe King's latest Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes adventure. . . . Add King's devilishly clever plot and eccentric characters, her ability to achieve a perfect balance between serious mystery and lighthearted humor, and the charm with which she develops the captivating relationship between Holmes and Russell, and the result is a superbly rich read that would please Doyle himself.” —Booklist
“King has the tone, mood, and voice precisely right. . . . Very good.” —The Boston Globe
“Mary's description of how she thinks through all the elements of a mystery--so deep in thought as if she were in a trance---is excellent.” —Salon.com
