Berkley Trade Paperback
"[A] history mystery in fine Victorian style!"--Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author
"[A] fascinating heroine...A thoroughly enjoyable read!"--Victoria Thompson, USA Today bestselling author
“Anyone who enjoys historical mysteries, atmospheric settings, and strong female investigators should have Huber on their automatic buy list.”—Criminal Element
"Huber provides plenty of depth and detail about social conditions and mores in 19th-century Edinburgh, but the human relationships are the heart of the story. Historical fans will be well satisfied." --Publishers Weekly
"A missing heir, an estranged family, and a possible poisoner add up to a pretty puzzle for two far-from-disinterested sleuths....Huber draws on the beauties and dangers of the mysterious moorlands to provide a fitting setting for a knotty mystery filled with envy, greed, and thwarted love."--Kirkus Reviews
ABOUT A FATAL ILLUSION:
New parents Lady Kiera Darby and Sebastian
Gage look forward to introducing Sebastian’s father to his
granddaughter, but instead find themselves investigating an attempt on
Yorkshire, England. August 1832. Relations
between Sebastian Gage and his father have never been easy, especially
since the discovery that Lord Gage has been concealing the existence of
an illegitimate son. But when Lord Gage is nearly
fatally attacked on a journey to Scotland, Sebastian and Kiera race to
his side. Given the tumult over the recent passage of the Reform Bill
and the Anatomy Act, in which Lord Gage played a part, Sebastian wonders
if the attack could be politically motivated.
