Adam’s Rib

monstrous-regiment-women-us.jpgA Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King is the second novel in the series which has captivated me recently. I think it is the best of the three I have read.

This story, in fact all three novels, are focused on Mary Russell with Holmes playing her friend and mentor. Together they sleuth and solve crimes, but the story being told in the first-person by Mary reveals more about her than Sherlock. I like it!

In this novel, Mary comes of age and receives her inheritance. She becomes acquainted with a charismatic woman crusader and reconnects with a former college chum.

The suspense kept me up way past midnight! I am hooked on these stories and have come to admire King’s creative writing ability a great deal. I hope my followers enjoy these novels as much as I did!
