Dark Road to Darjeeling

Deanna Raybourn's fourth in the Lady Julia Grey series, this novel is exotic in setting and the plot is full of unexpected twists. Lady Julia and Brisbane have finally settled things between themselves. After an extended honeymoon in the Mediterranean, they are ready for adventure. They head to India at the request of Julia's sister Portia and brother Plum to aid an old friend, the newly widowed Jane Cavendish. She questions her husband's death; it may have been murder for his estate, the tea plantation where she lives. If it were murder, is she and her unborn child at risk? Amid the lush foothills of the Himalayas, the danger is palpable and the investigation could prove deadly.
