The Murder of Mary Russell by Laurie R. King, Amazon Kindle format

Mary Russell is 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.

And what of the other person to whom Mary Russell has opened her heart: the couple's longtime housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson? Russell's faith and affection are suddenly shattered when a man arrives on the doorstep claiming to be Mrs. Hudson's son.

What Samuel Hudson tells Russell cannot possibly be true, yet she believes him — as surely as she believes the threat of the gun in his hand. In a devastating instant, everything changes. And when the scene is discovered — a pool of blood on the floor, the smell of gunpowder in the air — the most shocking revelation of all is that the grim clues point directly to Clara Hudson.

Or rather to Clarissa, the woman she was before Baker Street.

The key to Russell's sacrifice lies in Mrs. Hudson's past. To uncover the truth, a frantic Sherlock Holmes must put aside his anguish and push deep into his housekeeper's secrets — to a time before her disguise was assumed, before her crimes were buried away.

There is death here, and murder, and trust betrayed. And nothing will ever be the same.

Forty Thieves by Thomas Perry

A Novel of Suspense

Publisher: Recorded Books

Audible Daily Deal Price: $3.95

Forty Thieves by Thomas Perry, Amazon Kindle format

Sid and Ronnie Abel are a first-rate husband-and-wife detective team, both retirees of the LAPD. Ed and Nicole Hoyt are married assassins-for-hire living in the San Fernando Valley. Except for deadly aim with a handgun, the two couples have little in common — until they are both hired to do damage control on the same murder case.

The previous spring, after days of torrential rain, a body was recovered from one of the city's overwhelmed storm sewers. The victim was identified as James Ballantine, a middle-aged African-American who worked as a research scientist for a prestigious company and was well liked by his colleagues. But two bullets to the back of the head looked like nothing if not foul play. Now, with the case turning cold, Ballantine's former employers bring in the Abels to succeed where the police have failed, while the Hoyts' mysterious contractors want to make sure that the facts about Ballantine's death stay hidden.
