"Veronica Speedwell navigates a dark world of scandal and murder in this new adventure from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award nominated author Deanna Raybourn. Veronica Speedwell and her natural historian colleague Stoker are asked by Lady Wellingtonia Beauclerk to help with a potential scandal so explosive it threatens to rock the monarchy. Prince Albert Victor is a regular visitor to the most exclusive private club in London, known as the Club de l'Etoile, and the proprietess, Madame Aurore, has received an expensive gift that can be traced back to the prince. Lady Wellie would like Veronica and Stoker to retrieve the jewel from the club before scandal can break. Worse yet, London is gripped by hysteria in the autumn of 1888, terrorized by what would become the most notorious and elusive serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper--and Lady Wellie suspects the prince may be responsible. Veronica and Stoker reluctantly agree to go undercover at Madame Aurore's high class brothel, where another body soon turns up. Many secrets are swirling around Veronica and the royal family--and it's up to Veronica and Stoker to find the truth, before it's too late for all of them"--… (més)

A Murderous Relation
4 Stars

In the autumn of 1888, London is in the midst of Jack the Ripper's reign of terror, and Veronica Speedwell reluctantly agrees to retrieve an expensive bauble gifted by Prince Albert Victor to Madame Aurore, a well known courtesan. After infiltrating the woman's exclusive brothel in Whitechapel, events soon spiral out of control and the Veronica and her steadfast partner, Stoker, will have to employ all of their skills to survive.

Series note: The events in this installment rely heavily on details provided in book #1.

An entertaining addition to the series although the blurb is disappointingly misleading as Jack the Ripper is not the focus of the book, and the infamous killer puts in only a cameo appearance.

Raybourn's research into the social, political and cultural mores of the late Victorian era is demonstrated to full effect in this book. Whether it is the details on the dangers of life in Whitechapel or the misdeeds and scandals of the royal family, particularly those surrounding Prince Albert Victor, Raybourn's ability to impart this knowledge within the flow of the narrative is impeccable.

The ongoing development of Veronica and Stoker's relationship is another highlight of the book as they acknowledge and rely on the strength of their bond to overcome all obstacles. That said, readers expecting explicit details on their romance are bound to be disappointed as anyone who has read the Lady Julia series knows that slow burn and not steaminess is Raybourn's forte.

Unfortunately, the suspense plot is the weakest element as it lacks originality and seems to rehash many of the themes and ideas from the first book. Only the identity of one of the villains is new.

Overall, the Veronica Speedwell series is a well-written historical mystery with engaging characters, and now I will have to wait a while for th next installment - *sigh*. ( )

3.5 stars actually. ( )

Jack the Ripper is out there creating terror and havoc, and closer to home it appears someone in the royal family might be caught up. So Veronica and Stoker to the rescue. It's all totally ridiculous, but Raybourn knows how to keep your attention and to make you laugh. I'll say no more. Enjoyable, perfect sort of listen for me. **** ( )

Raybourn delivers fast-paced action, sexual tension, quirky characters, and clever repartee, but she also crafts quiet scenes—most memorably, a meeting with one of the Ripper’s future victims—rich with deeper emotion. This entry’s bound to win her new fans.

A rollicking tale of desire, murder, and mayhem complete with Victorian atmosphere and two bickering leads.
