'To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband's dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor' London, 1886 For Lady Julia Grey, her husband's sudden death at a dinner party is extremely inconvenient, not to mention an unpardonable social gaffe. Once the shock has passed, however, things take rather a turn for the worse. Her eccentric relations descend en masse (and her odious Aunt Ursula clearly intends to stay until another relative expires elsewhere), and Julia is forced to drape the mirrors in crepe and herself in endless widow's black. But when swarthy, inscrutable private investigator Nicholas Brisbane tells her that her husband's death may not have been due to natural causes, Lady Julia finds herself thrust into surroundings she could never have imagined, from the elegant home of a renowned courtesan, to a volatile boxing match in a gypsy camp, determined to bring her husband's murderer to justice. As the truth begins to emerge, it seems there was a great deal Julia did not know about her husband–and a great deal she has to learn about herself. A wholly original mystery set in the extravagant surroundings of upper–class Victorian England, Silent In The Grave marks debut author Deanna Raybourn as a fresh, unique voice in historical fiction.

Return to the beginning of Deanna Raybourn's adored Lady Julia Grey's Victorian mystery series, and be carried off by adventure in this first–time digital collection. Silent in the Grave: Book 1 The darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives threatening letters from an unknown source. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home. Determined to bring her husband's murderer to justice, the late Sir Edward's wife Julia engages the enigmatic Brisbane to help her investigate Edward's demise, following a trail of clues that lead her to ever closer to a killer who waits expectantly for her arrival. Silent in the Sanctuary: Book 2 Fresh from a trip to Italy, Lady Julia returns to Sussex to find her father's estate crowded with family and friends. Much to her surprise, the one man she had hoped to forget–the enigmatic and compelling Nicholas Brisbane–is among the houseguests. But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn when one of the guests is found brutally murdered. Lady Julia resumes her unlikely and deliciously intriguing partnership with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out to unravel a tangle of deceit before the killer can strike again. Silent on the Moor: Book 3 In Grimsgrave Hall, Nicholas Brisbane has inherited a ruined estate, replete with uncanny tenants and one unwanted houseguest: Lady Julia Grey. Lady Allenby and her daughters, dependent upon Brisbane and devastated by their fall in society, seem adrift, powerless to change their fortunes. But poison does not discriminate between classes, and a mystery unfolds from the rotten heart of Grimsgrave. Lady Julia may have to solve this particular one alone, as Brisbane appears inextricably tangled in its heinous twists and turns. But blood will out, and before spring comes, Lady Julia will have uncovered a long–buried legacy of malevolence and evil.
