The fourth in the "Mary Russell" series. Married sleuths Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell revisit the scene of Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" to uncover the source of a centuries-old family curse, at the center of which is Dartmoor, a great Devonshire moor. In re-creating Sherlock Holmes in previous books as an adjunct to her chief protagonist, Mary Russell, author Laurie King has set the couple's adventures in a milieu consistent with her own creation and, although true to the place and period, independent of Conan Doyle's work. Not sure if this kept my interest as much as some of the others in the series but a good read still.
