In conversation with Jacqueline Winspear
This event is part of the 2016 Mystery Writers Conference, but is open to the public. Conference participants recieve preferred seating.

Has Laurie R. King followed in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s footsteps and killed off her protagonist? Sherlock Holmes is back in the latest in the New York Times bestselling series that Lee Child has hailed as “the most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today”—but is Mary Russell?

When The Murder of Mary Russell opens, the shabby carpet of 221B Baker Street is drenched in blood—and no one knows the fate of Mary Russell. Could this be the final performance for the world’s best-known Holmesian author?

Laurie R. King is the New York Times bestselling author of thirteen Mary Russell mysteries, five contemporary novels featuring Kate Martinelli, and the acclaimed novels The Bones of Paris, A Darker Place, Folly, Keeping Watch, and Touchstone. She lives in Northern California, where she is at work on her next Mary Russell mystery.
