Dreaming Spies: A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes - Laurie R. King

Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, are on their way home from India by way of Japan in this book ... and strange things start happening on board the ship, let alone once they get into Japan itself. It all seems to center around the Haiku of Basho.

While the book was entertaining, I sometimes found myself going back to re-read something because I felt like I'd missed a transition.

It was a complicated plot with lots of twists and turns, so it kept me thinking all the time ... but it wasn't my favorite of the series.
