bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey mysteries, returns once more to Victorian England... and introduces intrepid adventuress Veronica Speedwell.
- London, 1887. After burying her spinster aunt, orphaned Veronica Speedwell is free to resume her world travels in pursuit of scientific inquiry—and the occasional romantic dalliance. As familiar with hunting butterflies as with fending off admirers, Veronica intends to embark upon the journey of a lifetime.
