The Moor by Laurie R. King
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I read this in stops and starts, but it still hung together very well. Laurie King really captures the Sherlock Holmes that Doyle presented and the character of Mary Russell is believable and a complement to Holmes.
In this book, Baskerville Hall is revisited because of mysterious sights of a hound and a spectral carriage which was seen on the moor. When a person turns up dead, a local rector, an actual person, calls in Sherlock Holmes. There is a new owner of Baskerville Hall and he has a mysterious secretary with him.
The plot twists and turns and there is a lot of interesting information on the people who live on the moor and those in the villages surrounding it which adds dimension to the book.
