Description
Scotland, 1830. Following the death of her dear friend, Lady Kiera Darby is in need of a safe haven. Returning to her childhood home, Kiera hopes her beloved brother Trevor and the merriment of the Hogmanay Ball will distract her. But when a caretaker is murdered and a grave is disturbed at nearby Dryburgh Abbey, Kiera is once more thrust into the cold grasp of death. While Kiera knows that aiding in another inquiry will only further tarnish her reputation, her knowledge of anatomy could make the difference in solving the case. But agreeing to investigate means Kiera must deal with the complicated emotions aroused in her by inquiry agent Sebastian Gage. When Gage arrives, he reveals that the incident at the Abbey was not the first - some fiend is digging up old bones and holding them for ransom. Now Kiera and Gage must catch the grave robber and put the case to rest...... before another victim winds up six feet under. Praise for the novels of Anna Lee Huber- 'Lady Darby is an engaging new sleuth to follow.' Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author 'A riveting debut.' Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author 'An unusual and romantic heroine.' Judith Rock, author of The Whispering of Bones 'A fast-paced, atmospheric, and chilling debut featuring a clever heroine with a shocking past and a talent for detection.' Carol K. Carr, national bestselling author of India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy 'Huber's protagonist is complex and likable and the well-plotted mystery is filled with fascinating secondary characters . . . You'll be engaged right to the end.' RT Book Reviews 'Huber's debut . . . reads like a cross between a gothic novel and a mystery with a decidedly unusual heroine.' Kirkus Reviews
