a well -written "memoir" and initial series of adventures ... I'm just having a problem wrapping my head around a 60 year old Sherlock Holmes, first accepting a 15 year old girl as an apprentice then forming an equal partnership with her when she is a couple of years older.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice was a wonderful book. As some who has enjoyed many of the Sherlock Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, I found the book absolutely fascinating. Laurie King does a great job of showing the famous detective in a new light yet still keeping the character believable as Sherlock Holmes. I recommend this for fans of Sherlock Holmes or even just fans of mystery. It is a suspenseful thrilling novel which keeps you reading it to the end.

I enjoyed King's vision of Homles as a woman in Mary Russell. Quite fun!
