Publisher Comments:

Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one murky riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door...literally. Its a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But its not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est:

A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer--or has the murderer caught them?

I was a little dubious about these mysteries, which feature Sherlock Holmes and a younger female protegee named Mary Russel, but I actually ended up enjoying this quite a lot. King ends up truly writing a mystery in the Sherlockian vein, albeit longer than most of Doyle's; there are the same sort of improbable machinations, with people running about in disguise and impersonating nobility and all of that good stuff. King also, wisely perhaps, keeps Russel firmly in the foreground of the mystery, with Holmes as an important but less active character. I mean to find some of the other Mary Russel mysteries, as it seems that I inadvertantly picked up one of the later books in the series, and there were a lot of things that probably would have made more sense if I'd read the earlier books first.
