Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes untangle the slippery
threads of insanity and deadly secrets as they investigate a
disappearance in this chilling novel from New York
Times bestselling Laurie R. King.
With Mrs Hudson gone from their lives and domestic chaos
building, the last thing Mary Russell and her husband,
Sherlock Holmes, need is to help an old friend with her mad
and missing aunt.
Lady Vivian Beaconsfield
has spent most of her adult life in one asylum after
another, since the loss of her brother and father in the
Great War. And although her mental state seemed to be
improving, she’s now disappeared after an outing from
Bethlem Royal Hospital . . . better known as Bedlam.
Mary wants nothing to do with the case—but she
can’t say no. And at least it will get her away from the
challenges of housework and back to the familiar business of
investigation. To track down the vanished woman, she brings
her deductive instincts and talent for subterfuge to the
fore—and of course, enlists her husband’s legendary prowess.
Together, she and Holmes travel from the grim confines of
Bedlam to the winding canals and sun-drenched Lido cabarets
of Venice—only to find the foreboding shadow of Benito
Mussolini darkening the fate of a city, an era, and a
tormented English lady of privilege.

Re: Island of the Mad
I LOVE Sherlock Holmes stories. And I love that his wife
is about as good at mystery has he is. This looks like
another great piece to the Sherlock series. THanks.
