Notes:
Mary Russell is well used to dark secrets - her own, and those of her famous partner and husband, Sherlock Holmes. Trust is a thing slowly given, but over the course of a decade together, the two have forged an indissoluble bond. But what of the other person Mary Russell has opened her heart to, that third member of the Holmes household: Mrs Hudson? Russell has come to love - and trust - the long-time housekeeper like the mother she lost so long ago. Mrs Hudson, once the most long-suffering landlady in all of London, followed Holmes into his Sussex retirement back in 1903. Surely she had good reasons for that? Russell has never questioned why, until a man comes to the door one morning, claiming to be Mrs Hudson's son. What Samuel Hudson tells Russell shatters her childish faith. It cannot possibly be true, yet she believes him. She also believes his threats: both the gun in his hand, and the knowledge he holds.

Book:Island of the mad:2019 Book
Author: King, Laurie R
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Allison & Busby Limited
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2018 Following the revelations of Mrs Hudson's past and a commission of murder in the spring of 1925, Mary Russell receives word that one of her university friends - a devout feminist - has been committed to Bedlam mental hospital. Russell herself is feeling less than balanced, and the last thing she wants is to deal with the mad. However, she agrees to look into it when her friend escapes. The pursuit leads her across Europe to Venice and finally to the Poveglia Island, a lunatic asylum built on the bones of centuries of plague victims. Russell takes a deep breath, and follows - only to find that the lunatics may be in charge of the asylum, and nothing is quite as it seems.
