“Let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in
the grave.”

These ominous words are the last threat that the darling of
London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer.
Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private
inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward
collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of
his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests.

Julia is outraged when Brisbane visits and suggests that Sir
Edward has been murdered. It is a reaction she comes to
regret when she discovers the damning paper for herself, and
realizes the truth. Determined to bring her husband’s
murderer to justice, Julia engages the enigmatic Brisbane to
help her investigate Edward’s demise, following a
trail of clues that lead her to even more unpleasant truths,
and ever closer to a killer who waits expectantly for her
arrival.

Fresh from a six-month sojourn in Italy, Lady Julia returns
home to Sussex to find her father’s estate crowded
with family and friends. Much to her surprise, the one man
she had hoped to forget—the enigmatic and compelling
Nicholas Brisbane—is among her father’s
houseguests…and he is not alone. Not to be outdone,
Julia shows him that two can play at flirtation and promptly
introduces him to her devoted, younger, titled Italian count.

But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn
when one of the guests is found brutally murdered in the
chapel. Lady Julia resumes her unlikely and deliciously
intriguing partnership with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out
to unravel a tangle of deceit before the killer can strike
again.

Silent on the Moor, Book 3

In Grimsgrave Hall, enigmatic Nicholas Brisbane has
inherited a ruined estate, replete with uncanny tenants and
one unwanted houseguest: Lady Julia Grey

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. But
blood will out, and before spring touches the craggy
northern landscape, Lady Julia will have uncovered a Gypsy
witch, a dark rider and a long-buried legacy of malevolence
and evil.
