San Francisco mystery writer Laurie R. King is best-known for her series of detective novels featuring an improbable pair – none other than Sherlock Holmes and his wife, Mary Russell. King writes standalone novels, too, and her latest is the atmospheric, creepy “The Bones of Paris.”
In “Bones,” Harrison Stuyvesant, a private eye adrift in 1929 Paris, is assigned to track a young American girl who has disappeared. He runs into several real-life characters, including the artist Man Ray, and encounters a number of people with, shall we say, an unhealthy obsession with body parts.
King discusses her book tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors interview show on state public affairs network TVW. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. (Comcast channel 23 in Seattle). Or, you can watch it here. Here’s some more information from King’s informative web site.
