More About the Author

A sixth-generation native Texan, Deanna Raybourn graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in English and History and an emphasis on Shakespearean Studies. She taught high school English for three years in San Antonio before leaving education to pursue a career as a novelist.

Fourteen years later, she signed a three-book deal with MIRA Books. "Sex, lies and awesome clothing descriptions" is how one reader has described Deanna`s debut novel, Silent in the Grave, published in December 2007. The first in the Silent series, the book follows Lady Julia Grey as she investigates the mysterious death of her husband with the help of enigmatic private inquiry agent Nicholas Brisbane. From the drawing rooms of the aristocracy to a Gypsy camp on Hampstead Heath, Silent in the Grave deftly captures the lush ambience of Victorian London.

The series continues with the second book, Silent in the Sanctuary (December 2008), a classic English country house murder mystery with a few twists and turns for Brisbane and Lady Julia along the way.

Deanna lives in Virginia with her husband and daughter.

4.0 out of 5 stars fab! 26 Oct 2011
By Spud
I love the whole series of these (though I am finding it hard to get hold of the 'Dark road to Darjeeling', disaster!). I enjoyed this one very much indeed, though I felt that it does improve upon a second reading, I suppose because you understand better all the nuances that you might have missed the first time. Perhaps the considerable focus on Nicholas and Julia's attempt to settle into their married life means that the other characters are not quite so well developed as usual but it is still a very brilliant and absorbing read with an excellent, twisty plot. Definitely destined to become another treasured favourite. The only problem is that I never know quite what to do with myself once I have got to the end of any of these books- everything else seems vaguely unsatisfactory!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read as usual 8 Sep 2011
By serama
The latest installment in the Lady Julia Grey mysteries is just as great as the last four. However, this story takes awhile to get going and the characters of Portia and Plum aren't so involved in the plot. Thoroughly enjoyable read though.

I look forward to each new book in the series - it's definitely worth reading them all from the beginning to understand some of the nuances. I think the siblings could have played a bigger role in this, as they always provide some light relief, but otherwise, a good story. The mystery, as ever, is well thought through, and it is hard to guess how it will all end. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars another strong addition to Julia Grey Series! 25 July 2011
I'll keep it short and sweet. Its perfection as usual. You will love it - that being said Portia was strangely absent in her character. And sometimes i wanted to slap Brisbane, but i still found it fabulous. xoxox

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story of Lady Julia 7 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lady Julia And Nicholas Brisbane are a marriage made in heaven, he is all bristling dark hair, she is full of eyelash fluttering curiosity. This means that his detective work is often affected by her interference. But he forgives her. A well crafted story and series.
