Dark Road to Darjeeling, by Deanna Raybourn
I've enjoyed the Lady Julia Grey series from the start. Lady Julia and her eccentric family have been good fun, and the mysterious inquiry agent, Nicholas Brisbane, an intriguing romantic foil. This installment took forever to read, and my loss of momentum hindered my enjoyment of the book. It was probably quite good, offered a somewhat different view of life in colonial India, and added a few more puzzle pieces to the fragmented portrait of Mr. Brisbane.
