Reviews

"King has stepped onto the sacred literary preserve of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, poached Holmes, and brilliantly brought him to life again." --The Washington Post Book World

"A fascinating and often moving account of a friendship so unusual and so compelling that one almost accepts it as being historically real." --The Denver Post

"Enchanting...The Beekeeper's Apprentice is real Laurie R. King, not faux Conan Doyle, and for my money, it's better than the original." --San Jose Mercury News

"Rousing...Riveting...Suspenseful." --Chicago Sun-Times
