Product description

Review

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
