Mystery Book Group

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

In March, we are kicking off our mystery book group by reading The Beekeeper's Apprentice, or On the Segregation of the Queen by Laurie R King. In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes - and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern 20th-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective. In their first case together, they must track down a kidnapped American senator's daughter and confront a truly cunning adversary: a bomber who has set trip wires for the sleuths and who will stop at nothing to end their partnership. Named "One of the Century's Best 100 Mysteries" by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. (description from Goodreads)
