An Artless Demise
An Artless Demise | Anna Lee Huber
7 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
Lady Darby returns to London with her new husband, Sebastian Gage, but newlywed bliss won't last for long when her past comes back to haunt her in the latest exciting installment in this national bestselling series. November 1831. After fleeing London in infamy more than two years prior, Lady Kiera Darby's return to the city is anything but mundane, though not for the reasons she expected. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of imitating the notorious misdeeds of Edinburgh criminals, Burke and Hare--killing people from the streets and selling their bodies to medical schools. Then Kiera's past--a past she thought she'd finally made peace with--rises up to haunt her. All of London is horrified by the evidence that "burkers" are, indeed, at work in their city. The terrified populace hovers on a knife's edge, ready to take their enmity out on any likely suspect. And when Kiera receives a letter of blackmail, threatening to divulge details about her late anatomist husband's involvement with the body snatchers and wrongfully implicate her, she begins to apprehend just how precarious her situation is. Not only for herself, but also her new husband and investigative partner, Sebastian Gage, and their unborn child. Meanwhile, the young scion of a noble family has been found murdered a block from his home, and the man's family wants Kiera and Gage to investigate. Is it a failed attempt by the London burkers, having left the body behind, or the crime of someone much closer to home? Someone who stalks the privileged, using the uproar over the burkers to cover his own dark deeds?

Book 7, in this installment Kiera's past comes back to haunt her. London is besieged by burkings along the entire social structure. Due to her unfortunate first husband's dealings with body snatchers and butchery for his anatomy book, Kiera's once again in society's crosshairs being accused of taking part in the murders. She and her current husband Gage, a private enquiry agent, work to not only solve the crime but clear her name for once and all.

Absolutely a winner! I love this series, and this is the best yet. The amount of historical detail makes this a cut above other historical mysteries. And a good, involved mystery it is. The only problem is waiting for the next book 😄

There was much to love while reading this story! I definitely really felt for Kiera‘s character as her past came back to haunt her. There was also quite the mystery behind the death‘s that were whipping all of London into an uproar! It was the type of tale with twists and turns that will fully engage your imagination as the clues lead from one possibility to another.

Number 7 in the Lady Darby series and another winner from Huber! Rich in historical details, this one involves the deaths of 3 noble heirs as well as mixing in the resurrectionist trade and Keira‘s frightening history with it. ♥️ the development of Keira‘s and Sebastian‘s love story as well. 4.5/5⭐️ I will never tire of reading anything by Huber...period. 😊👏👏

Thanks to #NetGalley and #Berkley for the ARC. Out 4/2.

Bookzombie Yay! So glad to see it‘s another good one! 3mo
robinb @Bookzombie It was great! I love this series so much! 😊👍 3mo
