A Lady Darby Mystery
Anna Lee Huber

An anatomist's wife becomes the prime suspect in a gruesome murder in Huber's gothic-tinged debut. Lady Kiera Darby has been living with her sister and brother-in-law since the death of her husband, a renowned anatomist. After a party guest is found stabbed to death in her brother-in-law's garden, Kiera finds herself under a cloud of suspicion, simply because of her deceased husband's career. She teams up with houseguest and inquiry agent Sebastian Gage to clear her name. Can she prove her innocence? Set in 1830's Scotland, Huber's debut mystery is compelling and suspenseful.
