This installment in the Mary Russell series has Russell and Holmes encountering Mahmoud and Ali Hazr - introduced in O, Jerusalem - and assisting them investigating a series of seemingly disconnected mysteries. It's pretty much impossible to describe anything about this book without spoiling one of the primary plot points, so I'll just say a couple of general things:

- In terms of the mysteries that Russell and Holmes are investigating, this book and mysteries are much better written and constructed than the third and fourth books in the series. The complexity of the plot is reminiscent of the first book in the series, and therefore, pretty enjoyable.

- I really liked a couple of the new characters King writes for this story, although I'd like more definition between the traits King gives to Iris and Helene, and the ultimate culprit is barely present in the narrative.
