Hudson. Readers like me have been thrilled that Laurie R. King has continued to write novels featuring Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell. In each novel, there is more development of familiar characters. The latest novel, The Murder of Mary Russell, develops Mrs. Hudson, the longtime housekeeper. It’s no spoiler to say that readers will learn things about Mrs. Hudson that we never expected. The novel offers so much of what we’ve come to expect from Laurie King: an intelligent plot, interesting twists, and hours of reading entertainment in the comfort of familiar characters, some of whom have deeply kept secrets to be revealed.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
