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.

Synopsis

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

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.

About the Author

Deanna Raybourn

With degrees in English and History and a particular love of Regency and Victorian times, Deanna Raybourn is a committed anglophile. At her husband's insistence, she gave up teaching to devote her energies to writing. Clearly her husband knew what he was doing.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on JULIA GREY...

Deanna Raybourn’s aristocratic Victorian Lady Julia Grey has so far appeared in three novels, all featuring involving capers and sparkling dialogue. The chemistry between Julia and the enigmatic detective Nicholas Brisbane is a delight and the plots are complex but full of romantic fizz. SILENT ON THE MOOR takes the heroes to windswept Yorkshire in 1888.
