When Russell discovers Holmes’s own secret friendship with the spy, she knows the die is cast: she will accompany her husband to India to search for the missing operative. But Russell soon learns that in this faraway and exotic land, it’s often impossible to tell friend from foe—and that some games aren’t played for fun but for the highest stakes of all…life and death.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Laurie R. King's Garment of Shadows.
About the Author
Praise For The Game: A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes…
"A rousing adventure story made credible by the sheer force of its characters' personalities and the sharply realized details of their surroundings. Good historical fiction is as close as we'll ever get to time travel, and historical fiction doesn't get any better than this."—The Denver Post
"A wondrously taut mystery, ticking away like a malevolent clock."—Booklist (starred review)
"Splendid...perhaps the rippingest of all Russell's ripping tales."—Seattle Times
