This isn't your average eBook...Prepare to go beyond the page with this ebook exculsive Enriched Edition of Silent on the Moor! It is enhanced with a recipe, list of characters, letter from Lady Julia Grey, and an excerpt from Morga's journal by author Deanna Raybourn that will bring the world of Silent on the Moor to life, all without leaving your screen. Despite his admonitions to stay away, Lady Julia arrives in Yorkshire to find Brisbane as remote and maddeningly attractive as ever. Cloistered together, they share the moldering house with the proud but impoverished remnants of an ancient family: the sort that keeps their bloodline pure and their secrets close. Lady Allenby and her daughters, dependent upon Brisbane and devastated by their fall in society, seem adrift on the moor winds, powerless to change their fortunes. But poison does not discriminate between classes.... A mystery unfolds from the rotten heart of Grimsgrave, one Lady Julia may have to solve alone, as Brisbane appears inextricably tangled in its heinous twists and turns.
Following Silent in the Grave and Silent in the Sanctuary, the newest book in the Lady Julia Grey series has a lot to measure up to-and it does. Freed from many of Victorian society's strictures following her husband's death, Julia feels she's found purpose assisting private inquiry agent Nicholas Brisbane, but their mutual attraction and his self-determined unsuitability keep them at a crossroads. As Julia descends on Grimsgrave, Brisbane's newly purchased estate on the Yorkshire moors, it becomes clear that it's not just the house that's rapidly falling apart-the inhabitants aren't doing well either. As the characters unravel, the mystery begins. The complex story mixes the dangerous undertones of family secrets, local lore, and the current desires of the living. After Brisbane is nearly murdered, the suspense builds to a wonderfully shocking end. Learning about Brisbane's past, a satisfying conclusion, and the promise of another book will thrill longtime fans. A great choice for mystery, historical fiction, and/or romance readers, with a strong appeal for Anne Perry buffs.-Stacey Hayman, Rocky River P.L., OH (c) Copyright 2010.
