Summary, etc.:
"Veronica Speedwell navigates a dark world of scandal and murder in this new adventure from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award nominated author Deanna Raybourn. Veronica Speedwell and her natural historian colleague Stoker are asked by Lady Wellingtonia Beauclerk to help with a potential scandal so explosive it threatens to rock the monarchy. Prince Albert Victor is a regular visitor to the most exclusive private club in London, known as the Club de l'Etoile, and the proprietess, Madame Aurore, has received an expensive gift that can be traced back to the prince. Lady Wellie would like Veronica and Stoker to retrieve the jewel from the club before scandal can break. Worse yet, London is gripped by hysteria in the autumn of 1888, terrorized by what would become the most notorious and elusive serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper--and Lady Wellie suspects the prince may be responsible. Veronica and Stoker reluctantly agree to go undercover at Madame Aurore's high class brothel, where another body soon turns up. Many secrets are swirling around Veronica and the royal family--and it's up to Veronica and Stoker to find the truth, before it's too late for all of them"-- Provided by publisher.

    New York Times best-selling author Raybourn continues her enthralling Veronica Speedwell series with the much-anticipated fifth installment set in Victorian England. Here, natural-historian Veronica and her colleague Revelstoke Templeton-Vane (aka Stoker) are summoned by Lady Wellingtonia Beauclerk to London in October 1888. Veronica, who is the unacknowledged daughter of the Prince of Wales, meets with her stepmother, Alexandra of Denmark, who seeks her help in preventing what could be a huge scandal involving Alexandra's eldest son, Eddy (Prince Albert Victor), who has given a stately and expensive jewel to the madam of a brothel. Complicating matters, there is much speculation as to whether there is a connection between Eddy and Jack the Ripper. It is up to Victoria and Stoker to sneak into the brothel and steal the jewel before it can be traced to the prince. The charming characters and involving story, together with the smoldering heat between Stoker and Veronica, make this one a highlight in a very popular series. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
