Is crime-solving an aphrodisiac? Are love and marriage compatible with murder and mayhem? We'll look at five couples -- spouses, lovers, friends -- who sleuth together. They give new meaning to "til death do us part."
The Beekeeper's Apprentice  by Laurie King
A chance meeting with an elderly beekeeper turns into a pivotal, personal transformation when fifteen-year-old Mary Russell discovers that the beekeeper is the reclusive Sherlock Holmes, who soon takes on the role of mentor and teacher. This is not a "Sherlock Holmes" story. It is the story of a modern young woman who comes to know and work with Holmes, the story of young woman coming to terms with herself and with this older man who embodies the age that is past.
