The Moor
The Moor: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes | Laurie R. King
In the eerie wasteland of Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes summons his devoted wife and partner, Mary Russell, from her studies at Oxford to aid the investigation of a death and some disturbing phenomena of a decidedly supernatural origin. Through the mists of the moor there have been sightings of a spectral coach made of bones carrying a woman long-ago accused of murdering her husband--and of a hound with a single glowing eye. Returning to the scene of one of his most celebrated cases, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes and Russell investigate a mystery darker and more unforgiving than the moors themselves.

I‘ve listened to the first few of this series, but the library doesn‘t have them all in audio, so instead I read with the narrators voice in my head. #cottoncandyreads

#Booked2019 Female detective. I've been really enjoying Laurie R. King's Mary Russell. Mary is such a likeable and dynamic character! In this one Sherlock returns to Baskerville Hall with Mary along.

Glad to be back in the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes world once again! In this fourth book of the series, Russell and Holmes are back to the moors - the site of Sherlock‘s original case of The Hound of the Baskervilles - to solve a similar type of mystery.

This book had an incredible sense of place; the moor itself was a main characters. The atmospheric nature of the book and the growth of the characters made it a recommend for me!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I am enjoying this series. Thought I might stop since the third was meh. But this one is doing well. I also read the original Sherlock Holmes Hounds of Baskerville first. (Reading in the car during soccer practice.)

Mehso-so

The narrator of the audio book is great and I love the descriptions and the relationship between Sherlock and his wife Russell. Still the mystery portion of the book drags a bit and it is not enough of a page-turner. I still would recommend the audio version just because I enjoyed the narrator so much.

Ran across a copy in the thrift store for $1. Obviously, it had to come home with me.
