Veronica Speedwell returns in an adventure filled with betrayal and deception from Deanna Raybourn, 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 archeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed from the newly-discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess. The 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.

Soon Veronica also has to contend with sordid details and malevolent enemies that have emerged from Stoker’s past. Caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats, Veronica must unravel a web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything…

“A ruthlessly intelligent heroine.”—NPR

Praise for A TREACHEROUS CURSE

“While readers of Elizabeth Peters’s ‘Amelia Peabody’ mysteries will enjoy this title, it is fans of Jane Eyre who will truly appreciate the third volume in Rabyourn’s historical series (following A PERILOUS UNDERTAKING). Her intricately plotted and dramatic story features a strong-willed, independent woman who is the intellectual equal of the brooding Stoker.”—Library Journal (Starred review)

“As always, Raybourn writes with verve and wit….A Victorian Phryne Fisher, Veronica is an irresistible, modern, engaging woman who uses scientific observation and natural charm to guide her investigations.”—Booklist (Starred review)

A Treacherous Curse [is] a funny, feminist, historical fiction mystery series that I love….If you haven’t started this series yet now’s a perfect time to get caught up!"—Book Riot

“[E]xhilarating third mystery featuring Veronica Speedwell and her colleague, Revelstoke “Stoker” Templeton-Vane….In audacious, decidedly un-Victorian Veronica, Raybourn has created a delightful cross between real-life reporter Nellie Bly and Phryne Fisher.”—Publishers Weekly


Praise for the Veronica Speedwell Mysteries

"I love this series! Veronica Speedwell is utterly unique--a lady with an intriguing past and some rare kick-ass skills--definitely not your standard historical mystery detective. Her relationship with the brooding and equally mysterious Stoker is fascinating. The plots are clever and fast-paced. I can't wait for the next adventure."—Amanda Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Knew Too Much


“Veronica Speedwell is sure to join the greats of mystery fiction.”—Alan Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of the Flavia de Luce series

“Veronica Speedwell might just be one of the most endearing heroines in mysteries, period...[a] woman ahead of her Victorian times. She’s smart, dashing, and entirely capable....Her sense of humor and chemistry with Stoker, her counterpart, just make this series even better.”—Bustle

“Wickedly clever and devilishly amusing.”—Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie Hope series

“I love this book! Brings us the powerful Veronica Speedwell, who triumphs over adversity and danger with wit, charm, and uncanny determination. A real find.”—Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Virgin River series

“A smart, plucky, way-ahead-of-her-time heroine....The ending left me looking forward to Veronica’s next exploits.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

A fun heroine who defies convention and embraces intrigue.”—Booklist

“A fine combination of detective story and character study...sure to interest mystery lovers and Anglophiles alike.”—Historical Novels Review

“Full of innuendo and amusing repartee, Deanna Raybourn's sly wit will be appreciated by readers of romance and historical fiction alike...a fun read, reminiscent of Elizabeth Peters's novels, whose cross-genre charm is sure to appeal to readers.”—Shelf Awareness
