Disappointing - have read every book in this series but this one had a weak plot. As a Sherlockian it lacked facts necessary to support actions that Holmes would approve and act upon. Felt the authors own preferences strayed from the mysteries ejooyed by readers of SH
Great read. A little tedious in description after description of Venice. I would have liked to see a little more suspense and daring with Holmes and Russell together. And maybe a tad more affection between the married couple. Even a genius shows some affection - but, please, not romance novel style. The story still reads well and kept my interest throughout. It’s nice to have Russell/Holmes back and I hope Laurie King will keep them alive for more adventures.
