The Beekeeper's Apprentice: Or on the Segregation of the Queen/A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes (Mary Russell Novels) by Laurie R King
The Beekeeper's Apprentice: Or on the Segregation of the Queen/A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes (Mary Russell Novels)

maggisueross, January 1, 2012

This is the first in a series of books by Laurie King, featuring the characters of Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. It has been out for a few years and I am afraid I read the more recent books first, but finally took the time to go back and read the beginning books to get a greater sense of the history between the two characters. I am so glad I did.
Ms. King writes better than Conan Doyle ever did. The stories are fast paced, well written and clever. They are mystery/suspense with a decidedly feminist twist. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, or simply a lover of suspense novels with strong, intelligent women, these are books for you.
