The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King is a well drawn historical novel that makes the assumption that Sherlock Holmes is real and that he takes on an apprentice by the name of Mary Russell. The relationship between Holmes and Russell developes slowly throughout the book and by the end, the characters, including Dr. Watson and Mrs. Hudson provide enthralling escape for the reader into the world at the turn of the century. King is up to her 10th installment in this well written series. Fans of Conan Doyle will be pleased.
