Another instalment of the Victorian set crime novels. Once again Lady Julia Grey and Nicholas Birsbane find themselves thrown together in their investigative ways when a murder occurs at Julia’s fathers estate during a family gathering. A feisty heroine, a plot that holds your interest to the end and a dash of sexual tension between the two protagonists. Great stuff.

Synopsis

Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn

Fresh from a six-month sojourn in Italy, Lady Julia returns home to Sussex to find her father’s estate crowded with family and friends—but dark deeds are afoot at the deconsecrated abbey, and a murderer roams the ancient cloisters. Much to her surprise, the one man she had hoped to forget—the enigmatic and compelling Nicholas Brisbane—is among her father’s houseguests…

But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn when one of the guests is found brutally murdered in the chapel, and a member of Lady Julia’s own family confesses to the crime. Certain of her cousin’s innocence, Lady Julia resumes her unlikely and deliciously intriguing partnership with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out to unravel a tangle of deceit before the killer can strike again.

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.
