I just love this series.

The highlight of Dark Road to Darjeeling is not the mystery itself. My least favorite of the series so far. I suppose when Ooculto honest with myself, I really am reading this series for that reveal of Brisbane. With each consecutive volume, Ms Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey series seemed to be slipping into uninspired, repetitive mediocrity—such a pity after the literary bravura of Silent in the Grave.

The danger is palpable and, if they are not careful, Julia and Nicholas will not live to celebrate their first anniversary. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.
