In daring to re-imagine the life of Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic Sherlock Holmes, Laurie R. King’s New York Times bestselling mystery series—now celebrating its twentieth anniversary!—succeeds on the strength of its own now-beloved protagonist: Mary Russell, the young American who literally stumbles upon the great retired detective-turned-beekeeper. With the dazzling mix of suspense, period detail, and enthralling pace that is King’s hallmark, these acclaimed novels follow Russell as she rises out of her mentor’s shadow to form a long-running partnership with the always inscrutable and charismatic Holmes.

Traversing such exotic locales as British-occupied Palestine, the Moroccan underworld, and the wilds of India amidst the turmoil of the early twentieth century, this convenient eBook bundle compiles eight of their most thrilling adventures:

O JERUSALEM

JUSTICE HALL

THE GAME

LOCKED ROOMS

THE LANGUAGE OF BEES

THE GOD OF THE HIVE

PIRATE KING

GARMENT OF SHADOWS

*Also includes the eBook short story “Beekeeping for Beginners” and an exclusive preview of the next Mary Russell mystery from Laurie R. King, Dreaming Spies*!
