Fresh off her instant New York Times bestselling
KILLERS OF A CERTAIN AGE, fans of Deanna Raybourn will be thrilled for the next installment of her award-winning, bestselling Veronica Speedwell series:
A SINISTER REVENGE.
In her latest adventure, Veronica is invited a dinner party where she must identify a killer amongst the guests – solving a long-ago murder and trying to prevent new ones, too.
The Veronica Speedwell novels are told from the point-of-view of lepidopterist (just fancy word for “butterfly enthusiast”) Veronica, a spunky young aristocratic woman living in 1880s England and constantly thirsting for adventure.
She is joined in
her escapades by
her natural historian beau Stoker; their smoldering chemistry,
along with the adventures, keeps bringing readers back to the books time
and time again.
Veronica’s natural-historian beau, Stoker, has been away in Bavaria for months and their relationship is at an impasse.
Veronica shows up before him with his brother, Tiberius, Lord
Templeton-Vane, he is lured back home by an intriguing job offer:
preparing an iguanodon for a very special dinner party.
Tiberius has received a cryptic message—along with the obituaries of two recently deceased members of his old group of friends, the Seven Sinners—that he too should get his affairs in order.
Realizing he is in grave danger but not knowing why, he plans a reunion party for the remaining Sinners at his family estate
to lure the killer out while Veronica and Stoker investigate.
As the guests arrive and settle in, the evening’s events turn deadly. More clues come to light, leading Veronica, Stoker, and Tiberius to uncover a shared past among the Sinners that has led to the fatal present.
But the truth might be far more sinister than what they were prepared for.
