I am a die hard Laurie R King fan and have been since I read her first book not long after it was published I can t think of another author who has written as many different kinds of protagonists and set stories in as many different kinds of settings as she has or who has crossed genre lines as successfully Her sense of place is always a joy to experience her research impeccable and her prose extraordinary While those elements are present in this latest installment of her Mary Russell series I found the book disappointing after a long string of truly outstanding offerings As another reviewer noted we got a lot of telling in this book and relatively little showing which was unfortunate given the uniue opportunities presented by Russell s amnesia at the beginning of the book I also found that the emphasis on political intrigue reuired a lot of exposition that kept me from becoming as emotionally involved with the characters as I normally do It also seemed to overshadow any of the interesting personal and interpersonal conflicts resolution and growth that to me make a series worth following It s still a good read just not the same caliber as her other recent work I don t regret buying or reading it and will undoubtedly revisit it though
