How can you kill off the main character of your book? Conan Doyle got sick of Sherlock Holmes, but when he needed the money he brought him back. Does Laurie King follow in the footsteps of the great Conan Doyle and actually kill off Sherlock's wife? Must read to solve this mystery.
I so love the history of the period that King brings along with her plots. So much info about what is happening in society and the status of women. Sub-stories of minor characters so enhance the story.
