Death Comes to Dartmoor
- Other, Historical Mystery
Is a fearsome monster on the loose?
Miss Merula Merriweather barely saved her uncle from the gallows after he was wrongly accused of murder―and now, she’s left the bustle of Victorian London to recuperate in the fresh air of Dartmoor with her fellow zoologist, Lord Raven Royston. The trip offers a unique treat, as they’ll be staying with a friend who owns a collection of rare specimens―including a kraken, a sea monster of myth and legend.
But all is not right in the land of tors, heaths, and mist. Their host’s maid has vanished without a trace, and the townspeople hold him responsible, claiming that his deadly specimens are alive and roam the moors at night. Merula and Raven are skeptical―but the accusations become more ominous when they find several specimen jars empty.
“Vivian Conroy has created a memorable cast of characters certain to become favorites. I’d love to see Merula Merriweather and Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell meet up for a not-so-genteel tea.” -Tasha Alexander, The New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Emily mysteries
