Lady Kiera Darby is threatened with secrets about her late husband’s involvement with body snatchers in 1831 London. Seventh in the mystery series. 

Book beginning:

November 5, 1831
London, England 
I didn't know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the poor fellow. For all his tailored clothing and the jaunty angle of his hat, which refused to stay on his head properly, he was in a ragged state. A straggly tuft of hair flopped over one eye and his arms dangled limply at his sides, hindering rather than assisting the pair of footmen who struggled between them to guide him into his place.

Page 56:
"Oh, Kiera, we just heard the news last night," exclaimed Charlotte. "Of all the utter nonsense!"
