The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King

28 Sep

A young female matching wits with Sherlock Holmes? Surely not! Homes, now a retired beekeeper is literally stumbled upon by Mary Russell in the countryside. Observant and witty she and Holmes strike up an unusual friendship that brings them both back into the world of solving crimes.

Layer upon layer of mysteries that lead up to the large one will impress most discerning mystery readers. Intelligent, witty and humorous. There are lots of details that give a strong feel for England around 1915. Characters are well developed and the plot is enticing but not fast. #1 in the Mary Russell series. 1994, 341 pages.
