Publisher's Summary

In a strange room in Morocco, Mary Russell is trying to solve a pressing mystery: Who am I? She has awakened with shadows in her mind, blood on her hands, and soldiers pounding on the door. Out in the hivelike streets, she discovers herself strangely adept in the skills of the underworld, escaping through alleys and rooftops, picking pockets and locks. She is clothed like a man, and armed only with her wits and a scrap of paper containing a mysterious Arabic phrase. Overhead, warplanes pass ominously north.
Meanwhile, Holmes is pulled by two old friends and a distant relation into the growing war between France, Spain, and the Rif Revolt led by Emir Abd el-Krim—who may be a Robin Hood or a power mad tribesman. The shadows of war are drawing over the ancient city of Fez, and Holmes badly wants the wisdom and courage of his wife, whom he’s learned, to his horror, has gone missing. As Holmes searches for her, and Russell searches for herself, each tries to crack deadly parallel puzzles before it’s too late for them, for Africa, and for the peace of Europe.

Loved it

Another excellent book about Mary and Holmes. Another visit with past friends too. Reader is as good as always, and the addition of a male reader for when Holmes is alone is a very good dynamic.

Russell with amnesia?!

It may be one of those worked-to-death devices but it is totaly inconveniant for our Heroine with an old friend missing, trechery afoot and a country on the brink of rebelion and war, and she with a splitting headache... and who is this man that claims to be her husband?!

Thoroughly enjoyed by us over several meals. Looking forward to the next.
