Grave Robbery | Deanna Raybourn
9 posts | 8 read | 4 to read
Veronica and Stoker discover that not all fairy tales have happy endings, and some end in murder, in this latest historical mystery from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-nominated author Deanna Raybourn. Lord Rosemorran has purchased a wax figure of a beautiful reclining woman and asks Stoker to incorporate a clockwork mechanism to give the Rosemorran Collection its own Sleeping Beauty in the style of Madame Tussaud's. But when Stoker goes to cut the mannequin open to insert the mechanism, he makes a gruesome discovery: this is no wax figure. The mannequin is the beautifully preserved body of a young woman who was once very much alive. But who would do such a dreadful thing, and why? Sleuthing out the answer to this question sets Veronica and Stoker on their wildest adventure yet. From the underground laboratories of scientists experimenting with electricity to resurrect the dead in the vein of Frankenstein to the traveling show where Stoker once toured as an attraction, the gaslit atmosphere of London in October is the perfect setting for this investigation into the unknown. Through it all, the intrepid pair is always one step behind the latest villain--a man who has killed once and will stop at nothing to recover the body of the woman he loved. Will they unmask him in time to save his next victim? Or will they become the latest figures to be immortalized in his collection of horrors?

Flew through the #audiobook today.

Veronica and Stoker needed some help to find the culprit and the identity of the victim. They might not have been at the height of their game, but it was an entertaining adventure nonetheless.

It didn't sound like this would be the last adventure either. 🥳🥳

The newest installment in the adventures of Veronica and Stoker - this one has all the banter and the adventure one expects plus shades of a good Frankensteinesque story. It was a fun read as usual!

I‘ve been AWOL for what feels like forever; very depressed, dealing with hubby‘s medical issues. But reading this really picked me up. I love this series. Great characters, Raybourn‘s always fantastic dialogue, and a fascinating premise kept me hooked. Definitely recommend, even if you haven‘t read the earlier books in the series.

Book 9 in Veronica Speedwell series. Love this series! This one was perfect: intriguing mystery, fast pace, fun banter.

Jasper the cat rarely sits on my lap, but he joined me while I finished this book.

Always fun spending time with Veronica Speedwell and Stoker—their adventures are always entertaining and full of surprises. This series is a consistently reliable read that doesn‘t disappoint. And with secondary characters like Mornaday and J.J. getting more time on the page, the world keeps expanding with more opportunities for complexity, shenanigans, and who knows what. As expected, it‘s a pick.

“In their latest adventure, Veronica and Stoker discover that a wax figure of a woman that ends up in their possession isn‘t wax at all – but rather a damsel who has met a sinister end.

The crime-solving duo must figure out who killed the maiden before anyone else meets a similar fate.”

Always happy to be back with Veronica and Stoker. I love that this time around they seem to comfortable in their personal lives that it kind of makes everything else seem rather ease. Which is really refreshing. The mystery itself is very intriguing and mixed with some truly hilarious moments and it's one of the lighter entries in the series. Just sad I read it too quickly. Excelsior! #mystery #series
