I’ve been wanting King to write a new book featuring Kate Martinelli for years. It looks like I read the last one at the end of 2000. I was wondering if she’d given up on the series. Though actually when I saw this book was coming out I felt a bit disappointed that it wasn’t a Mary Russell book as I’ve been enjoying that series too. You can’t please me :-)

Anyway, this book turned out to be a bit of both. Mary Russell doesn’t feature but King has put her Sherlock Holmes & Conan Doyle knowledge to work as the victim in this mystery is a rather obsessive Holmes fan & collector.

It’s nice to meet up with old friends. Pretty good.
