In The Beekeeper's Apprentice, Laurie R. King came up with a completely original story that had Sherlock Holmes as one of its principal characters but was in no way part of the Holmes canon. The focus of that book was a young woman, Mary Russell. Now in A Monstrous Regiment of Women, Mary Russell's adventures as a student of the famous detective continue. A series of murders claims members of a strange suffrage organization's wealthy young female volunteers, and Mary, with Holmes in the background, investigates, little knowing what danger she personally faces.
Laurie R. King is also the author of the Edgar Award-winning novel A Grave Talent. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
King's second mystery tale of a young woman who's a protege of Sherlock Holmes.

No, no, no. Why must authors feel the need to ruin perfectly good characters with awful sequels? This happened with Jean Auel's Ayla, and it's happened with Ms. Read morePublished on Nov. 16 2002 by corglacier7
