A Murderous Relation
Veronica Speedwell Mysteries: Book #5
“In A Murderous Relation by Deanna Raybourn (the Lady Julia Grey mysteries), Veronica Speedwell - a thoroughly independent woman who sells butterflies to collectors to fund her expeditions and follows a strict set of rules for the gentlemen she takes to her bed while abroad (Rule #1: No Englishmen) - teams up yet again with her partner-in-crime, Stoker - Lord Revelstoke Templeton-Vane, a former Navy doctor who was scarred physically and romantically on his adventures abroad and who wrestles with the demons of being recognized as legitimate but not biologically a Templeton-Vane - to solve a mystery that weaves throughout London society, from the most titled to those most at risk. In this fifth installment of their escapades, the orphaned adventuress has some surprisingly royal family connections call upon her to retrieve a foolhardy gift given to someone who could use it to bring scandal to the monarchy. Many behind-the-scenes machinations, both helpful and threatening, provide direction and impediments as the lepidopterist and the taxidermist use their powers of observation, their fighting skills, and their insatiable curiosity to prove whether or not a member of the royal family is actually Jack the Ripper.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
