LoveReading View on Silent in the Grave

This is the first in a new series of which we hope there are plenty more to come. Lady Julia Gray finds herself becoming an amateur detective after private investigator Nicholas Brisbane enlightens her on the not so natural death of her husband. Reminiscent of Mark Gatiss’s The Vesuvius Club but not quite so off the wall Julia Gray is going to be a great sleuth to follow.

Silent in the Grave Synopsis

London, 1886

To say I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband's dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor...

For Lady Julia Grey, her husband's sudden death at a dinner party is extremely inconvenient. However, things take a turn for the worse when inscrutable private investigator Nicholas Brisbane reveals that the death was not due to natural causes.

Drawn away from her comfortable, conventional life, Lady Julia is exposed to threatening notes, secret societies and gypsy curses, not to mention Nicholas' charismatic unpredictability...

This sparkling, witty tale is the first in a captivating new series featuring Lady Julia Grey and Nicholas Brisbane.
