About the Book:
a lepidopterist by trade, Veronica Speedwell has been up to much more
than chasing after rare specimens of butterflies. Continuing on after
the exhilarating adventures of
A Curious Beginning and A Perilous Undertaking, it’s difficult to imagine how the spunky and spirited Victorian-era sleuthcould find herself caught up in even more thrilling and dangerous exploits. But young Miss Speedwell does not disappoint in
A TREACHEROUS CURSE (Berkley Hardcover; January 2018), Deanna Raybourn’s
the highly anticipated third installment of the Veronica Speedwell mystery series. After
chasing down clues leading to her mysterious past, having quite
literally run off to join a traveling circus, and solving a murder
mystery at a ladies-only social club. However,
she always goes back to her true love: the butterflies. As colorful and unfettered as the butterflies
she collects, Veronica can't resist the allure of an exotic
mystery—particularly one involving her enigmatic,
frequently uncouth, yet ruggedly handsome
colleague Stoker. His former expedition
partner has vanished from an archeological dig with a priceless diadem
unearthed from the newly-discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess. The
disappearance is just the latest in a string of unfortunate
events that have plagued the controversial expedition, and rumors
abound that the curse of the vengeful princess has been unleashed.
Soon Veronica has to contend with sordid
details and malevolent enemies that have emerged from Stoker's past.
Caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats, Veronica must unravel a
web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything. With Raybourn’s clever plot construction and provocative storytelling,
A TREACHEROUS CURSE is sure to appeal to fans of Alan Bradley,
Jacqueline Winspear, Ann Perry and anyone on the hunt for a stimulating
frolic across the pages.
