Review: The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King

A middle aged, retired Sherlock Holmes in the 20th century finally meet a worthy partner who both compliments and challenges his talents. And she's a troubled teenage girl.

It's very well written, a little slow paced at first but I enjoyed reading about Mary's "training" as Holmes' apprentice. Excellent characterization, clever plot. I liked the different take on the time period setting, by moving it forward into the 20th century, it set it apart from Conan Doyle's work. However, overall, I thought it was very in keeping with a traditional Holmes tale.
