Deanna Raybourn is truly one of my favorites. I have the entire series and have loved each and every one of them. A new one (#4) just came out!

JMJ - I don't see a 4th Deanna Raybourn "Silent" mystery mentioned on her website, but maybe she hasn't updated it yet. Do you recall the title? The first three are:

Silent in the Grave
Silent in the Sanctuary
Silent on the Moor

That's because doesn't have a "Silent" title, though it is the fourth book in the Lady Julia Grey mysteries :)

It's called Dark Road to Darjeeling

I have been thinking about the DR novels for a while but confess I was put off by the Amazon reviews about the dialogue. I keep intending to try Anna Dean instead but have not got round to it yet. I have two by Nicola Cornick but was not impressed them and so have not finished them yet but I might try them again and change my mind -- not entirely sure this is likely though but I haven't passed them onto a charity shop yet which is some sort of sign.

Thanks, Annis. Great title, and it sounds as good as the others (which I must confess I haven't read, though I'd like to). Raybourn needs to update her website!

There's another one she has written, a standalone, that takes place in Transylvania. :eek: Every bit as good as the mysteries, I just loved it. Give it a try!
