Product description


Deanna Raybourn's debut novel is a wickedly clever send-up of the Victorian mystery genre, from the parlors and boudoirs of Julia's aristocratic world to the exotic society of the Gypsies. Grave robbing, prostitution, gambling, absinthe --- even a pet raven --- all contribute to the novel's sensational appeal. Raybourn tempers these dark topics, though, by mixing in plenty of humor. Absurd situations abound (including a truly bizarre murder weapon), and quirky characters verge on caricature. --Bookreporter

'With a strong and unique voice, Deanna Raybourn creates unforgettable characters in a richly detailed world. This is storytelling at its most compelling' --Nora Roberts

'Deceptively civilized and proper, Silent in the Grave has undercurrents of nefarious deeds, secrets and, my favourite, poisons. An excellent debut novel.' --Maria V. Snyder, author of Poison Study


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, 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 and Nicholas Brisbane.
