Edgar Award-winning author Laurie R. King again proves her flair fortantalizing mystery in this first novel of an acclaimed series. Long sinceretired from his observations of criminal humanity, Sherlock Holmes is engagedin a reclusive study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. Never did heexpect to meet an intellect to match his own--until he made the acquaintance ofa very modern 15-year-old girl whose mental acuity is equaled only by heraudacity, tenacity, and unconventional taste for trousers and cloth caps. Underthe master detective's sardonic instruction, Miss Mary Russell hones her talentfor deduction, disguises, and danger--in the chilling case of a landowner'smysterious fever, and in the kidnapping of an American senator's daughter inthe wilds of Wales. But her ultimate challenge is yet to come. A near-fatalbomb on her doorstep--and another on Holmes's--sends the two sleuths on thetrail of a villain whose machinations scatter meaningless clues and seemutterly without motive. The bomber's objective, however, is quite clear: to endRussell and Holmes's partnership...and their lives.Edgar Award-winning author Laurie R.
