Duration: 12 hours 37 minutes


In this thrilling new crime novel that ingeniously bridges Laurie R. King's Edgar and Creasey Awards-winning Kate Martinelli series and her bestselling series starring Mary Russell, San Francisco homicide detective Kate Martinelli crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes-in a spellbinding dual mystery that could come only from the 'intelligent, witty, and complex' mind of New York Times bestselling author Laurie R. King. Kate Martinelli has seen her share of peculiar things as a San Francisco cop, but never anything quite like this: an ornate Victorian sitting room straight out of a Sherlock Holmes story-complete with violin, tobacco-filled Persian slipper, and gunshots in the wallpaper that spell out the initials of the late queen. Philip Gilbert was a true Holmes fanatic, from his antiquated dEcor to his vintage wardrobe. And no mere fan of fiction's great detective, but a leading expert with a collection of priceless memorabilia-a collection some would kill for. And perhaps someone did: In his collection is a century-old manuscript purportedly written by Holmes himself-a manuscript that eerily echoes details of Gilbert's own murder. Now, with the help of her partner, Al Hawkin, Kate must follow the convoluted trail of a killer-one who may have trained at the feet of the greatest mind of all times.

    Wow bad and boring, I could not get into this book it was slow dull and bounced around from one thing to another and was very very hard to follow !

    I really enjoyed this story. I use these to commute and find myself sitting in the car for an extra couple of minutes just to hear a little more.

    This was an exceptional book...great to listen to and easy to follow, even though it is like a book within a book. I highly recommend it!

    Did not like this book. Probably won't be able to read anything about Sherlock Holmes now!

    Excellent book, kept me guessing to the very end! I have read the other books by this author and all of them are great mysteries.

    This may be a good story. The narrator has a non-expressive voice. Even though I listened to the whole book, I missed the story.
