A Monstrous Regiment of Women (1995)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553574566, Mass Market Paperback)In The Beekeeper's Apprentice, Laurie R. King came up with a completely original story that had Sherlock Holmes as one of its principal characters but was in no way part of the Holmes canon. The focus of that book was a young woman, Mary Russell. Now in A Monstrous Regiment of Women, Mary Russell's adventures as a student of the famous detective continue. A series of murders claims members of a strange suffrage organization's wealthy young female volunteers, and Mary, with Holmes in the background, investigates, little knowing what danger she personally faces.
Laurie R. King is also the author of the Edgar Award-winning novel A Grave Talent.

Theologian Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes team up to solve the murder of a wealthy feminist in London. The victim belonged to a movement whose demands go far beyond what the suffragettes seek. By the author of The Beekeeper's Apprentice.
