The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
In 1915, long since retired from his observations of criminal humanity, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. Never did he think to meet an intellect to match his own -- until his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a very modern fifteen-year-old whose mental acuity is equaled only by her audacity, tenacity, and penchant for trousers and cloth caps.

Under Holmes's tutelage, Russell hones her talent for deduction, disguises, and danger: in the chilling case of a landowner's mysterious fever and in a kidnapping in the wilds of Wales. But her ultimate challenge is yet to come. Soon the two sleuths are on the trail of a murderer whose machinations scatter meaningless clues... but whose objective is quite unequivocal: to end Russell and Holmes's partnership -- and their lives.

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice. A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. Bantam Dell Publishing Group, ISBN: 0553381520 (March, 2002), 341 p., $12.00.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice (UK 2000)

From the Publisher:
What would happen if typical Victorian man Sherlock Holmes came face to face with a twentieth-century female? And what if she grew to be a partner worthy of his legendary talents. In The Beekeeper's Apprentice, Laurie King tells the story of Mary Russell, who in 1914 meets a retired beekeeper on the Sussex Downs. His name is Sherlock Holmes. Pompous, smug and misogynistic, the Great Detective can still spot a fellow intellect, even in a fifteen-year-old woman. At first he takes Mary on as his apprentice on small, local cases, gradually working up to larger investigations. All the time Mary is developing as a detective in her own right, but then the sky opens on them, and Holmes and Mary find themselves the targets of a slippery, murderous and apparently all-knowing adversary. Together they devise a plan to trap their enemy -- a plan that may save their lives, but may also kill their relationship...

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice. HarperCollins, ISBN: 0006514340 (February, 2000), 347 p., £5.99 (?).

The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice (USA 1996)

From the Publisher:
Edgar Award-winning author Laurie R. King again proves her flair for tantalizing mystery in this first novel of an acclaimed series. Long since retired from his observations of criminal humanity, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. Never did he expect to meet an intellect to match his own--until he made the acquaintance of a very modern 15-year-old girl whose mental acuity is equaled only by her audacity, tenacity, and unconventional taste for trousers and cloth caps. Under the master detective's sardonic instruction, Miss Mary Russell hones her talent for deduction, disguises, and danger--in the chilling case of a landowner's mysterious fever, and in the kidnapping of an American senator's daughter in the wilds of Wales. But her ultimate challenge is yet to come. A near-fatal bomb on her doorstep--and another on Holmes's--sends the two sleuths on the trail of a villain whose machinations scatter meaningless clues and seem utterly without motive. The bomber's objective, however, is quite clear: to end Russell and Holmes's partnership... and their lives.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice (UK 1996)

From the Publisher:
What would happen if Sherlock Holmes, that perfect example of Victorian man, were to come face to face with a twentieth-century female? If she grew to be a partner worthy of his great talents? In The Beekeeper's Apprentice Laurie King tells the story of Mary Russell who, in 1914, meets a retired beekeeper on the Sussex Downs. His name is Sherlock Holmes and while he may be a pompous, smug misogynist, the Great Detective is no fool, and can spot a fellow intellect even in a fifteen-year-old woman.

So at first informally, then consciously, he takes Mary on as his apprentice. They work on a few small local cases, then on a larger and more urgent investigation and all the time Mary is developing as a detective in her own right, with the benefit of the knowledge and experience of her mentor and friend.

And then the sky opens on them, and they find themselves the targets of a slippery, murderous and apparently all-knowing adversary. Together they devise a plan to trap their enemy - it just might save their lives but will it kill off their relationship?

The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice (USA 1994)

From the Publisher:
What would happen if Sherlock Homles, a perfect man of the Victorian age -- pompous, smug, and misogynisitic -- were to come face to face with a twentieth-century female? If she grew to be a partner worthy of his great talents?

Laurie R. King, whose very different first novel, A Grave Talent drew rave reviews, read the Conan Doyle stories and wondered about such an imaginary encounter. And following through, she has written The Beekeeper's Apprentice.

1914, a young woman named Mary Russell meets a retired beekeeper on the Sussex Downs. His name is Sherlock Holmes. And although he may have all the Victorian "flaws" listed above, the Great Detective is no fool, and can spot a fellow intellect even in a fifteen-year-old woman.

So, at first informally, then consciously, he takes Mary Russell as his apprentice. They work on a few small local cases, then on a larger and more urgent investigation, which ends successfully. All the time, Mary is developing as a detective in her own right, with the benefit of the knowledge and experience of her mentor and, increasingly, friend.

And then the sky opens on them, and they find themselves the targets of a slippery, murderous, and apparently all-knowing adversary. Together they devise a plan to trap their enemy -- a plan that may save their lives but may also kill off their relationship.

This is not a "Sherlock Holmes" story. It is the story of a modern young woman who comes to know and work with Holmes, the story of young woman coming to terms with herself and with this older man who embodies the age that is past.

Laurie R. King: The Beekeeper's Apprentice. Or On the Segregation of the Queen. St. Martin's Press, ISBN: 0312104235 (January, 1994), 347 p., $21.95.
