A Grave Betrayal

(The seventh book in the Lady Evelyn Mystery series)
A novel by

Lady Evelyn is off on a new adventure…her honeymoon! Her newly minted husband, Daniel, and the ever-curious detective are off to India, seeking weeks of rest, relaxation, and romance. They are thrust into a world so different from the one they know, an exhilarating setting for Evelyn, who delights in the different cultures and traditions. Disrupting their exploration, a family acquaintance invites the pair to the famed Bombay Gymkhana Club for an evening of entertainment. Yet what begins as a cheerful event, ends in something far more sinister. Evelyn begins to wonder whether murder follows her, when she is the one to find one of her latest acquaintances having met a rather unnatural and premature end. Despite Daniel's protests, a detective cannot simply ignore a case unfolding before her very eyes, and so it is that the newly married couple is thrust into a murder investigation. Questions arise, doubts are born, and long-held secrets exposed, as Evelyn pokes her nose in – as her husband might say.
Cultural conflicts add to an atmosphere of mounting tension, as she navigates a world in which she can only be a visitor. She meets Indians and British alike, who are harboring all manner of secrets they might kill to keep. Evelyn must solve the case before another life is taken, including her own.
