Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King


Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King

In 1924, San Francisco is booming. The great fire and earthquake of 1906 cleared the ground for a modern city, but the closer she comes to the place she used to call home, the more troubling Mary Russell's dreams become. As Russell and her husband, the great detective Sherlock Holmes, attempt to settle their affairs in the City by the Bay, Mary's past isn't the only thing that catches up with them - a mysterious stranger is waiting for the pair, and may be the only one who holds the key to the locked rooms that have been haunting Mary's dreams...


'The Mary Russell series is the most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today'
Lee Child

'A wondrously taut mystery, ticking away like a malevolent clock'
