BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Laurie R. King's Pirate King .

Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one murky riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door...literally. It's a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But it's not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est :

A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer--or has the murderer caught them?

(NOTE: contains cryptically worded potential but not outright spoilers)
The premise is very far-fetched, and I was ready to dislike it when I saw that it was yet another set-in-a-mansion inheritance story, but the story lured me in. I ended up growing very attached to the restless man at the centre of the story. I love the way Laurie King wrote this character -- the complex personas (shall we say) of the two characters from book 5 somehow became not only credible but unforgettable in King's very capable hands. Still, without giving away the story, there is someone on whose shoulders a lot has just fallen -- he will be needing their example and moral support, but it sounds as though they won't be there to give it. Who will give it? The idea that he could manage all this tradition and responsibility and not be vulnerable to other family influences makes for a fairy tale. Oh, and either King forgot or an editor "corrected" this and it stayed that way -- an important little technically correct word in the last sentence should have been changed.

Another captivating mystery involving returning characters from O Jerusalem!, ducal heirs, surprising marriages, and heartbreaking World War I diaries. While I'm not one of those readers who try to solve the mystery, I am always anxious for the solution of the last pages and the freedom to move onto the next story.

Wonderful, as usual. Just a tad bit... disappointing. Our favourite Arabic duo aren't who they appeared to be and, in consequence, their character dulls dramatically. They became almost unlikable to me. Well, it's against the rules to skip a book in a series, so you'll still have to read it, I'm afraid.
