NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Laurie R. King’s New York Times bestselling novels of suspense featuring Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, comprise one of today’s most acclaimed mystery series. Now the couple is separated by a shocking circumstance in a perilous part of the world, each racing against time to prevent an explosive catastrophe that could clothe them both in shrouds. In a strange room in Morocco, Mary Russell is trying to solve a pressing mystery: Who am I? She has awakened with shadows in her mind, blood on her hands, and soldiers pounding on the door. Out in the hivelike streets, she discovers herself strangely adept in the skills of the underworld, escaping through alleys and rooftops, picking pockets and locks. She is clothed like a man, and armed only with her wits and a scrap of paper containing a mysterious Arabic phrase. Overhead, warplanes pass ominously north. Meanwhile, Holmes is pulled by two old friends and a distant relation into the growing war between France, Spain, and the Rif Revolt led by Emir Abd el-Krim—who may be a Robin Hood or a power mad tribesman. The shadows of war are drawing over the ancient city of Fez, and Holmes badly wants the wisdom and courage of his wife, whom he’s learned, to his horror, has gone missing. As Holmes searches for her, and Russell searches for herself, each tries to crack deadly parallel puzzles before it’s too late for them, for Africa, and for the peace of Europe. With the dazzling mix of period detail and contemporary pace that is her hallmark, Laurie R. King continues the stunningly suspenseful series that Lee Child called “the most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today.” BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Laurie R. King's Bones of Paris. Praise for Garment of Shadows “As always, the relationship between Holmes and Russell is utterly understated yet traced with heat and light.”—Booklist (starred review) “[A] taut tale . . . original and intriguing . . . This tantalizing glimpse into the life and times of a rapidly evolving Arabic society has remarkable resonance for our own uncertain times.”—Publishers Weekly “Those new to the series are in for a treat.”—Bookreporter

England, 1923: Mary Russell und Sherlock Holmes haben geheiratet und leben in den Sussex Downs. Doch die Ruhe ist nicht von langer Dauer: Sie bekommen Besuch von der Archäologin Dorothy Ruskin, die in Palästina eine geheimnisvolle Pergamentrolle entdeckt hat. Der Inhalt ist höchst brisant, denn die Schrift enthält Informationen über die biblische Maria Magdalena und führt schnell zu Unruhen in der christlichen Glaubensgemeinschaft. Als Ruskin plötzlich stirbt, wird es auch für Mary und Sherlock gefährlich. Denn der kaltblütige Mörder heftet sich jetzt an ihre Fersen ... Laurie R. King stellt Sherlock Holmes in ihrer Mary-Russell-Reihe eine weibliche Assistentin an die Seite, die ihm intellektuell ebenbürtig ist und die eine erfrischende neue Perspektive auf den berühmtesten Detektiv der Welt bietet. Jetzt als eBook bei beTHRILLED. "Laurie King hat eine wundervoll originelle und unterhaltsame Geschichte geschrieben, die zugleich witzig, herzergreifend und spannend ist." -Booklist

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Laurie R. King's Garment of Shadows. It’s only the second day of 1924, but Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, find themselves embroiled in intrigue. It starts with a New Year’s visit from Holmes’s brother Mycroft, who comes bearing a strange package containing the papers of an English spy named Kimball O’Hara—the same Kimball known to the world through Kipling’s famed Kim. Inexplicably, O’Hara withdrew from the “Great Game” of espionage and now he has just as inexplicably disappeared. When Russell discovers Holmes’s own secret friendship with the spy, she knows the die is cast: she will accompany her husband to India to search for the missing operative. But Russell soon learns that in this faraway and exotic land, it’s often impossible to tell friend from foe—and that some games aren’t played for fun but for the highest stakes of all…life and death.
