About the book:

Long-time fans of Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes, might think that their favourite sleuth met his fate at the hands of Dr Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Anyone who believes that, however, obviously hasn't read Laurie R King's delightful series featuring Holmes and his wife (!), Mary Russell. In The Beekeeper's Apprentice Holmes succumbs to the Oxford scholar's charms; now, in The Moor, fourth in the series, Holmes and Russell are summoned to Devonshire to solve a tin miner's mysterious death. Lonely Dartmoor provides plenty of opportunities for King to both relate the haunting legends of that part of the world and offer some amusing revisions to one of Holmes's most famous cases, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Though Holmes purists might resent the liberties taken with their hero, readers in search of a strong female protagonist, some fascinating local history, and spooky ambience will enjoy The Moor. --Amazon.com
