My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another quick addition to the Lucy James Mysteries (either book 22 or 8.5 depending on who is counting) … and as a whole I recommend the series. They don’t need to be read in any order; however, I started with Remember, Remember, then the Last Moriarty and worked well for me. Although the series introduces Lucy as a previously unknown love child of Holmes, eventually we get a much larger cast of characters all connected to Sherlock in some fashion (such as Lucy’s Husband Jack and his little sister Becky) … giving Sherlock a relatively minor role in most of the short stories.
This mystery revolves around a murder of a lady by her husband … but Holmes is not convinced. With a does of international intrigue tied into a subversive group linked to Egypt (hence the reference to Cleopatra). Overall it was a fun mystery with a few twists to keep it interesting … solving the murder while leaving a few loose ends for later stories (potentially). The excellent narration pushes this review to 4*.
I was given this free advance review/listener copy (ARC) audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
