Description

In the eerie wasteland of Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes summons his devoted wife and partner, Mary Russell, from her studies at Oxford to aid the investigation of a death and some disturbing phenomena of a decidedly supernatural origin. Through the mists of the moor there have been sightings of a spectral coach made of bones carrying a woman long-ago accused of murdering her husband—and of a hound with a single glowing eye. Returning to the scene of one of his most celebrated cases, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes and Russell investigate a mystery darker and more unforgiving than the moors themselves, in Laurie R. King's The Moor.

      • content:

        February 2, 1998
        On Dartmoor, a man lies dead beside "the footprints of a very large dog." Sound familiar? Yes, Sherlock Holmes is tracking the Hound of the Baskervilles again, some 20 years later with his wife, Mary Russell, whom King has so ably placed beside Holmes in such novels as A Letter of Mary and The Beekeeper's Apprentice. As a narrator, Russell is both more analytical and humorous than Watson. Still, the moor's eerie gloom pervades this sharp yet respectfully nostalgic update of Conan Doyle's classic novella. The elderly, eccentric Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould asks his friend Holmes to investigate the murder, as well as sightings of a ghostly carriage drawn by headless horses accompanied by a gigantic hound. In the constant fog and bone-chilling rain, Holmes and Russell tramp the muddy moors interviewing delightful characters. The new owner of Baskerville Hall, a mysterious, wealthy American, is the obvious villain, although it takes all the detectives' skills to determine his motives. This effort is slightly hobbled by the slow coalescence of its subplots. But King, always a fluent writer, is a wonder at combining the original "Hound" tale with a real person (Baring-Gould) and modern themes (land fraud) into a new, captivating story.

      • content: King's fourth novel, about the exploits of young Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, is set in Dartmoor, the site of Holmes's famous Baskerville case in the 1920s. Russell and Holmes are summoned to the moor by the Reverend Sabine Gehring-Gould, a nonfictional nonagenarian, "parson, squire, hymn writer, antiquarian, and folklorist." He asks the duo to solve the mysterious murder of a local tin miner and the sightings of a ghostly coach and hound. Jenny Sterling's crisp British accent effectively brings Russell's wry, intelligent, and intrepid character to life. Sterling easily makes the transitions between these diverse characters, allowing the listener to follow the narrative with alacrity. B.J.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
