Amidst the heraldry of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee
celebrations, a string of brutal murders rocks Britain's
upper crust—and could threaten the realm itself—in the
spellbinding debut of Patricia Marcantonio's Felicity Carrol
Felicity Carrol is interested in everything—except being a
proper young matron of Victorian society. Brilliant and
resourceful, Felicity took refuge in science and education
after her mother died and her father abandoned her to
servants. Now, all he wants is for her to marry into a
family of status and money.
Felicity has other ambitions—but her plans shudder to a halt
when her mentor is murdered at the British Museum and his
priceless manuscript of King Arthur lore is stolen. Tapping
into her photographic memory and the latest in the
burgeoning field of forensic detection, Felicity launches an
investigation. Handsome Scotland Yard Inspector Jackson
Davies is also on the case, and finds Felicity as meddlesome
as she is intelligent. But when more nobles are murdered and
their King Arthur relics stolen, Felicity must journey on
her own into the dark underworld of antiquity theft, where
she uncovers a motive far more nefarious than simple profit.
As the killer sets his sights on a new victim—a charismatic
duke who has captured Felicity’s imagination—the stakes rise
to impossible heights. It’s a case that could shake the
kingdom in Patricia Marcantonio’s series debut, Felicity
Carrol and the Perilous Pursuit.
