Dark Road to Darjeeling is another excellent mystery featuring Victorian sleuths Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane. Enlisted by Julia's sister to help an old family friend investigate her husband's sudden death, Julia and Brisbane journey to a Cavendish tea plantation, located in a remote valley in the foothills of the Himalayas. As tensions between them run high, Julia and Brisbane must probe the darkest secrets of the valley's eccentric British inhabitants, endangering not only their fledgling marriage but their lives, as well. Raybourn brings colonial India to life as she once again explores the darkness lurking within the human soul.
