Have you ever wondered what happened after Sherlock Holmes retired? Let the wonderful Laurie R. King show you in our three-book set. When brilliant young orphan Mary Russell quite literally bumps into Sherlock, her intellect impresses him - and it's not long before the duo pair up and set out to solve some very compelling crime cases.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice explains how the duo met in 1915 and follows their first case as a truly cunning adversary aims to stop their partnership in its infancy. Follow-up A Monstrous Regiment of Women takes place in 1921 and sees Mary on the verge of acquiring a sizeable inheritance and examining the New Temple of God after four of its members wound up dead...

A Letter of Mary finds the duo enjoying summer on their Sussex estate when they come into possession of an ancient manuscript - but the person who gave it to them is found dead after a tragic accident...

The Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes books are brilliant crime fiction offering a new take on one of literature's most beloved detectives - and a new hero to root for in his companion.
