The Moor Summary

The Moor by Laurie R. King

The Hound of the Baskervilles returns to terrorize the moors in the latest in this atmospheric crime series, featuring Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell: ' Beguiling variation on Sherlock Holmes sequels...civilized, ingenious and engrossing' - Literary Review Rumours of a ghostly carriage and a huge 'devil dog' on a moonlit moor lead Sherlock Holmes and his wife and sleuthing partner Mary Russell back to the eerie scene of one of his most celebrated cases. And when the body of tin miner Josiah Gorton is found surrounded by oversize paw prints, it looks as if the Hound of the Baskervilles has returned to haunt Dartmoor once more. Attempting to unravel the mystery, Holmes and Russell find themselves caught up in local legend, myth and folklore as a devilish pattern begins to develop against the backdrop of the dark, foreboding Devonshire moor. True to their expectations, events have a real-world explanation, but it is one that combines more wild emotion, surprise, and frightening suspense than any ghost story could.

The Moor Reviews

Praise for Laurie King's Mary Russell series: 'Mary Russell combines the quirky intellect of her mentor with a modern modus operandi, and promises to be a heroine to contend with' Time Out A Monstrous Regiment of Women: 'Great fun, this, written in a high camp style that delights all the more for taking itself seriously' Michael Painter, Irish Times 'This is an entralling entertainment, profoundly serious in its exploration of the theological basis for feminism, and as rampantly exciting as a John Buchan tale. But since Ms King never quite takes her tongue entirely out of her cheek, it never overbalances into ponderousness' Val McDermid, Manchester Evening News The Beekeeper's Apprentice: 'King's novel is civilised, ingenious and engrossing. Best of all, it has heart. In contemporary fiction, whatever the genre, that's a rare commodity' Philip Oakes, Literary Review
