Russell explores Mediterranean while Holmes is in Romania. Discovers Mrs. Hudson is in Monaco and involved in murder case.
  ritaer | Aug 18, 2021 |
After their adventures in Venice, Sherlock and Mary split up for different destinations. Holmes is off to Romania for something to do with vampires while Mary sails to the South of France with the Honorable Terry and some friends. Mary wants to see if she can locate their former housekeeper Mrs. Hudson who left a clue that Monaco was her destination when she left them.

Clarissa Hudson is in Monaco with some plans for her retirement that means she needs to interact with some of the shady characters who are making Monaco their home base in 1925. From smugglers to arms dealers to White Russians who fled the revolution, Monaco is filled with shady characters.

Monaco is also the home of a growing group of American ex-pats led by Gerald and Sara Murphy who are gathering a group of artists of all kinds from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Pablo Picasso.

When the body of a handsome young man is found in Mrs. Hudson's sitting room, Mary and Sherlock get involved in finding out what happened since Mary, at least, is certain that Mrs. Hudson had nothing to do with the murder.

I loved the setting and characters in this story and the way real historical characters are included in the story along with the fictional ones. The historical detail in intriguing. The story moves at a fast pace and was engaging. I can't wait for more adventures starring Mary Russell and her husband Sherlock Holmes. ( )

I think this 16th installment of the Mary Russell/ Sherlock Holmes series will appeal most to readers who have followed the entire series and become attached to their housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson. Set in Monte Carlo, the married detectives try to get to the bottom of the dangerous mystery surrounding Mrs. Hudson's past. Sedately paced, including a surprise appearance by none other than Lily Langtry, the plot is, nonetheless, quite enjoyable, with a particularly enjoyable episode which took place on two ships, with Mary & Mrs. Hudson in dire peril. Good read! ( )

Mary minus her husband is hanging around a rich, bored sophisticated set yachting and sunbathing on the Rivera. They all decide to go to Monte Carlo when by chance she runs into a revised Mrs. Hudson and her friend, Lily Langtree with whom they are associating with some shady characters. A couple of days later, a dead body turns up in Mrs. Hudson’s living room. Sherlock shows up to help unravel the mess and clear Mary’s beloved Mrs. Hudson. There was a lot of snobby talk at the start but exciting boat chase at the end. ( )

To all the grey-haired ladies out there,
Filled with wisdom and misch.
