When fellow Curiosity Club member, Alice Baker-Greene dies in a mountain climbing accident, Veronica is part of the memorial team. But when Stoker sees the rope, he realizes that the woman may have actually been killed when her rope was cut.

Princess Gisella travels from her country of Alpenwald to England to be part of the memorial ceremony. The first meeting reveals that Gisella and Veronica have a strong resemblance. So, when Gisella disappears, the Alpenwald delegation presses Veronica to act as the princess putting both Veronica and Stoker in the middle of a murder investigation with significant political ramifications.

An attempted bombing and threats suggest that the princess's life may be in danger, but is the threat from her inner circle or political rivals? And can Stoker and Veronica agree on the level of risk that they are willing to take?

What happens when 4 women who have worked together for 40 years decide to retire and take a luxury cruise together? What if those women are actually highly trained assassins?

Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie board a luxury cruise ship to celebrate their retirement from the Museum. However, when Billie spots a younger colleague aboard the ship, she begins to wonder if someone isn't looking to make their retirement more rest in peace. As the women use their training and limited resources, they come to realize that the Board has put out a bounty on them. Can they take out the board before the board takes them out?

Full of witty banter and girl power this is a tongue in check paean to the power of the invisible older woman.

I’ve grown to love this series, and I’ve eagerly awaited this installment for a year. I wasn’t disappointed! The only thing that I find upsetting is that I’ll have to wait more than a year for the next book!

Thanks NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group for this advanced readers copy.

I love this series, and it just keeps getting better! In this installment, Veronica Speedwell and her partner, Stoker, find themselves involved in a mystery that coincides with the killing spree of Jack the Ripper. Are they connected?

I love the developing relationships between the recurring characters in this series. I also really like the clever plots that bring something new to each new book.
