Review:
"[This is the] sixth volume of King's consistently smart and poignant series.... But it is the two major characters from Book 5, O JERUSALEM, which takes place in 1919--two Bedouin rogues named Ali and Mahmoud Hazr--who suddenly reappear four years later to excellent dramatic advantage as JUSTICE HALL quickly explodes into what may be the best book in the series."

Dick Adler, Chicago Tribune Books, 05/05/2002

Book Description: Bantam. 1 Paperback(s), 2009. soft. Book Condition: New. Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one riddle on the moor, another pounds on their front door with a bloodied fist, in this sixth entry in the inventive and highly regarded series by Edgar, Macavity, and John Creasy Dagger Award winner Laurie King. In 1920s England, the great detective and his protégé—now wife—Mary set out to resolve a murderous scandal involving an aristocratic family, an opulent hall, and an heir executed for cowardice in the Great War—or was it a murder, perpetrated by a would-be inheritor?"Sherlock Holmes has been much used and even more often abused by the many writers who have adopted and adapted him for their own purposes. What a delight then to find an author able to make profound changes while hewing so closely to the spirit of the original. With great verve and imagination King has extended Sherlock's career, pairing him with the superb Mary Russell. From the opening knock on their door by a wounded visitor to the satisfying denouement, King has again crafted a sterling story. Two characters from a previous adventure (O Jerusalem), Ali Hazr and his brother, Mahmoud, have problems that require an understanding of British aristocracy and the unraveling of the story behind a British soldier's execution. King employs the English manor house to good effect, including the changes wrought by WWI, and seamlessly incorporates as background the horrific wartime executions of numerous British soldiers for desertion or cowardice. King comes close to matching the fine intelligence and wit that informed Doyle's original adventures, providing irresistible entertainment."—Publishers Weekly"Pages of exquisite description of British stately homes, and what went on in them, propel rather than slow the tale; the accretion of detail mesmerizes. Holmes is offstage for much of the utterly preposterous plot, while Mary is at the center, studying the death by firing squad of a very young soldier in the Great War. Mycroft Holmes provides necessary access to some of the harshest of truths about World War I."—Booklist 333. Bookseller Inventory # 33784
