review The Murder of Mary Russell ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub On the doorstep claiming to be Mrs Hudson’s son What Samuel Hudson tells Russell cannot possibly be true yet she believes him as surely as she believes the threat of the gun in his hand In a devastating instant everything changes And when the scene is discovered a pool of blood on the floor the smell of gunpowder in the air the most shocking revelation of all is that the grim clues point directly to Clar. Well written as always the mystery itself is decent and Holmes and Russell are everything I have come to expectHoweverThe following contains spoilersI do not like the backstory King has chosen for Mrs Hudson Making her a criminal beholden to Holmes generosity weakens rather than strengthens the character In my headcanon she has never owed him a thing but as an independent human came into his life by her own free choice Worse Mary too is now beholden to the brothers to hide her own act one that would have been fully justified if allowed to come honestly to light What was a household of mutual appreciation and shared intelligence has become one of secrets Instead of acting together these characters now act alone for what they each perceive mostly wrongly as the others benefit It serves no one and makes for an unpleasant storyBeyond that I enjoy this series primarily for Russell s voice and an occasional glimpse from Holmes POV I got too little of that here The journey through the past I found mostly dull until those startling grey eyes showed up and afterwards I found only disappointment So while King s writing remains as excellent as ever her storytelling choices in this case left me wanting better Stage Mum possibly be true yet she believes him as surely as she believes the threat of the gun in his hand In a devastating instant everything changes And when the scene is discovered a Sweet Mandarin point directly to Clar.

The title of this latest Mary RussellSherlock Holmes is enough to make long time fans including me of this series wring their hands and bite their nails Murder of Mary Russell Has author Laurie King lost her mind Have fans not shown how much they love Mary Well there was nothing to do but read the book and hope for the bestSo what to tell those who haven t read The Murder of Mary Russell I can tell you that Laurie King has written a brilliant book one of the best in the series There is so much of the unexpected and it s all so beautifully written that I can only conclude Laurie is a genius The characters are all cleverly written creating a sustained interest in the scoundrels as well as the admired Mary Russell and her husband Sherlock Holmes But it is Mrs Hudson who steals the show in this book It so happens that Mrs Hudson has a past and what an interesting past this uiet efficient woman has She didn t just appear at 221 Baker St a grown woman with no history Her story is uite worthy of its own tellingAnd now I have to stop short of revealing the plot of this gripping story as that would diminish the joy for others of discovering every savory surprising tidbit that makes this book one of the best books I ve had the pleasure of reading The only final information that I dare impart is that there is blood uite a substantial bit on the floor of the parlor in the Sussex house shared by Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell and Mary Russell is missing Ready set read
