Another great mystery in this Sherlock inspired series

Riviera Gold: A Novel (Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes Book 16)

By: Laurie R. King

Rating: 5 of 5

I’ve read a number of the books in this series and have enjoyed every one. I am reading them out of order and find that it is easy to read them stand-alone but I want to read all of them because they are just that good.

In this book, Mary Russell and her husband Sherlock Holmes are on the Continent. Mary has gone by sailboat (believe it or not, as a deckhand) and has ended up in Monte Carlo.) Sherlock is MIA but will eventually join Mary.

Mary has gone for a specific purpose. That purpose is to find Mrs. Hudson. Mrs. Hudson left their employ and has retired but without letting anyone know where she has gone except a cryptic comment (in an earlier book) as she shook the dust of England off her feet.

What Mary doesn’t expect to find is a murder that has been committed in Mrs. Hudson’s residence with Mrs. Hudson being the prime suspect.

Mary and Sherlock get to work to solve the murder and, hopefully, get Mrs. Hudson freed. That is, if she is not, in truth, the murderer.

This is a book and a series that helped me past many hours in reading enjoyment. I’m looking forward to see where Mary and Sherlock end up next.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
