Product Details


Praise for A Wicked Conceit

“Huber provides plenty of depth and detail about social conditions and mores in 19th-century Edinburgh, but the human relationships are the heart of the story. Historical fans will be well satisfied.”–Publishers Weekly

“A mystery both complex and romantic”–Kirkus

Praise for the Lady Darby Mysteries

“A missing heir, an estranged family, and a possible poisoner add up to a pretty puzzle for two far-from-disinterested sleuths….Huber draws on the beauties and dangers of the mysterious moorlands to provide a fitting setting for a knotty mystery filled with envy, greed, and thwarted love.”--Kirkus Reviews 

“Riveting…An original premise, an enigmatic heroine, and a compelling Highland setting.”–Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author

“[A] history mystery in fine Victorian style!”–Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author

“[A] fascinating heroine…A thoroughly enjoyable read!”–Victoria Thompson, national bestselling author

“Huber’s debut…reads like a cross between a gothic novel and a mystery with a decidedly unusual heroine.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Set largely in Scotland in 1830, Huber’s well-done sequel to 2012’s The Anatomist’s Wife includes all the ingredients of a romantic suspense novel, starting with a proud and independent heroine…Strong and lively characters as well as believable family dynamics, however, elevate this above stock genre fare.”–Publishers Weekly
