Description

In England’s silent-film industry, Randolph Fflytte is king. Mary Russell is dispatched to investigate the criminal activities that surround Fflytte’s movie studio, but nothing seems amiss until the company starts rehearsals in Lisbon. 

There the 13 blonde-haired, blue-eyed actresses whom Mary is bemusedly chaperoning meet the swarm of real buccaneers Fflytte has recruited to provide authenticity. As movie make-believe becomes true terror, Russell and Holmes themselves may experience a final fade-out.

Love the series Hated this book

I have listened to all previous books in this series and found them delightful. Full of suspense and adventure along with all the quirky moments expected in a Sherlock Holmes novel. This had none of those. I kept waiting for the story to begin and it just became more and more tedious with no appearance of a plot. Very disappointed!

Russell and Holmes, always amusing.

I have enjoyed every book about these two characters. The tête-à-tête between them and the twists of the plot are very entertaining. A very good listen.

Mediocre & disappointing coming from King

I have quite enjoyed the Russell-Holmes novels (in order) ti this point. So, I am very disappointed with Pirate King (or Queen?); it just doesn't meet up to the expectations I had for LK's next in the series. Don't get me wrong, I still mostly enjoyed it, but certainly not as much as the rest. It is slow, plodding, & predictable all the way through. It reads as though King was writing to meet a publisher's deadline while her muse was on vacation, rather than because she was interested in any of her characters -- or readers. I hope future books with these chararacters -- which I will read regardless -- return to the standard of her first ones. Until today, I have considered King to be the closest to the Doyle canon in a large field of contemporary Holmes tribute authors. I hope her next novel reclaims that status. After all, it's next in my Audible library.
