One of the best restatements of mystery mythology are those contained in Laurie King’s Mary Russell Sherlock Holmes series. With a female central character as smart, resourceful, and egotisical as Holmes himself, they set off on a series of adventures with mysteries to be solved. I’ve read almost all her books and the first, the Beekeeper’s Assistant is a treasure that I’m going to reread this week.
