Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
Many of those who are fond of the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes novels seem to think that The Moor is the weakest in the series.
I beg to disagree. The Pirate King is. It is also the silliest, not that silliness is necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. It's just a very, very light, fluffy installment in the series.
Up side: pirates and movie-making, 1920s style. The fact that I borrowed this one from the library.
Down side: an exceptionally silly plot, and one that doesn't make sense.
However, I am told the next one, Garment of Shadows, is better. I truly hope so.
