Locked Rooms by Laurie R. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is part of the Mary Russell series that explores her past in San Francisco and the death of her parents, for whom she always felt responsible. She and her brother were quarreling in the car when her father turned to them and in a moment's inattention, lost control of the car and plunged over a cliff. Everyone in the car was killed but Mary and she has always felt like she was guilty of their deaths.
On a trip back to San Francisco, she begins having flashbacks and detail about the crash and the earthquake come back to her. The details don't add up and there is someone who doesn't want Mary to learn the truth.
This was one of the best books in this series. Laurie King has been able to capture the essence of Sherlock Holmes as Doyle presented him and these books flow as if they had been been penned by him.
