Reading Journal Entry: The Game, by Laurie R. King

Russell and Holmes go to India, yay!

Laurie King pretty much rocks. She's extraordinarily competent. I'm not sure how I missed this when it came out originally, but I'm glad to read it now. Spies, maharajas, cruise ships, explosives, planes, trains, Tibetan monks, Kipling, tigers, etc.

Guns on mantelpiece in first act go off satisfactorily in third act.

And now I have to read Lord Kim.

I haven't read any of her Mary Russel series but I have read quite a few of her modern ones, a while back. Can't remember much but pretty sure they featured a lesbian police office heroine and how other cops -- surprisingly ;-) -- couldn't handle it? Something like that? Set in SF or LA or somewhere Californian I think. Have you read those? I remember quite liking them but I seem to have forgotten them until reading your post.

As someone who read and loved "Kim" as a child, I can tell you that "The Game" was even better that way. :-)

BTW, it's just "Kim" - I think perhaps you're thinking of "Lord Jim", another British classic?

Must have! The brain cells, they are so close together, sometimes they get confused....
