Members of an Egyptian expedition fall victim to an ancient mummy's curse in a thrilling Veronica Speedwell novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey mysteries. London, 1888. As colorful and unfettered as the butterflies she collects, Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell can't resist the allure of an exotic mystery-particularly one involving her enigmatic colleague, Stoker. His former expedition partner has vanished from an archaeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed from the newly discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess. This disappearance is just the latest in a string of unfortunate events that have plagued the controversial expedition, and rumors abound that the curse of the vengeful princess has been unleashed as the shadowy figure of Anubis himself stalks the streets of London. But the perils of an ancient curse are not the only challenges Veronica must face as sordid details and malevolent enemies emerge from Stoker's past. Caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats-and thrust into the public eye by an enterprising new foe-Veronica must separate facts from fantasy to unravel a web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Veronica is an irresistible, modern, engaging woman who uses scientific observation and natural charm to guide her investigations.” Booklist (starred review)
“[The] intricately plotted and dramatic story features a strong-willed, independent woman who is the intellectual equal of the brooding Stoker.” Library Journal (starred review)
“The characters are well-written, witty, charming, and some are even quite smug…The story line is fast-paced, with some terrific twists and turns. Raybourn brings to life an old mummy’s curse with a fresh voice.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“A funny, feminist, historical fiction mystery series that I love.” BookRiot
“In audacious, decidedly un-Victorian Veronica, Raybourn has created a delightful cross between real-life reporter Nellie Bly and Phryne Fisher.” Publishers Weekly
