Dreaming Spies

Dreaming Spies - Laurie R. King

Laurie R. King writes the only series I follow—though if she would continue with her Kate Martinelli series, I would follow that one too! I have read every single one of her books.


This is the 13th book in the Russell and Holmes series. I found 12 to be very disappointing—it felt very forced and unfinished. But with this book, Laurie R. King is back to form.

This time Russell and Holmes go to Japan, work with a Ninja, and catch a blackmailer or two. The story makes sense, nothing feels too forced, and some of the usual minor characters put in appearances. I love the intricacies of King's stories, which make it so easy to give a spoiler. And her books are too enjoyable to spoil.
