Laurie King began writing historical mysteries featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes a number of years ago. She began with The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, a book that I loved, and has now made it to her 16th and newest novel, Riviera Gold.
There are many authors who write stories based on Sherlock Holmes. I think that the books by Ms. King are among the best in the genre. In time, the story has made it to the Jazz Age and the novel has a mix of historical and fictional personages. Among the real people are Gerald and Sara Murphy, but our intrepid duo is more interested in Mrs. Hudson.
There is murder and more in this title that I recommend. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
