Description

Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door.literally. It's a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But it's not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est: "Righteousness is my strength." A trail of ominous clues leads Holmes and Russell from an English hamlet to fashionable Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. But as the moment of reckoning approaches, will justice be done.or have they been lured straight into an elusive killer's perfectly baited trap?

Professional reviews

"Partners in detecting, Mary Russell and her husband, the inimitable Sherlock Holmes, find themselves tangled in the branches of a royal family tree. The WWI military execution for cowardice of the heir to Justice Hall is shrouded in mystery. With the Hughenfort family honor at stake, Holmes and Russell use disguise, deception, and deduction to uncover shocking truths. In this adventure, Mary dus most of the interesting investigating, while Holmes is off doing research. Jenny Sterlin has a voice that rings crisp and true. Her performance of King's British, European, and Arab characters is spot-on. Unhappily, her American/Canadian accent has a nasal flatness that detracts from an important character. However, from opening scene to epilogue, Sterlin brings every tense moment fully alive. This is King at her most ingeniously complex. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
