Beekeeping for Beginners

In this crackling novella,New York Timesbestselling author Laurie R. King reveals an unforgettable new twist in the adventure that led supersleuth Sherlock Holmes to discover his first (and finest) apprentice, Mary Russell.Sherlock Holmes is fending off a particularly dark mood as he roams the Sussex Downs, in search of wild bees. The Great War may be raging across the Channel, but on the Downs, the great detective nears terminal melancholia -- only to be saved by an encounter with headstrong, yellow-haired young Mary Russell, who soon becomes the Master's apprentice not only in beekeeping but in detection.Holmes instantly spots her remarkable ability, but his sharp eyes also see troubling problems. Why is this wealthy orphan who lives with her aunt so shabbily dressed? Why is she so prone to illness and accident? Is she herself the center of a mystery? These are questions that the great detective must answer quickly lest his protegee, and his own new lease on life, meet a sudden, tragic end.The tale of their meeting has been told from Russell's point of view, but even those who have never met the famed Russell-Holmes pair will read this tale with delight--and, as its climax builds, with breathless excitement.
