New York Times bestselling author Deanna Raybourn is the author of the Veronica Speedwell mystery series. The latest installment, A Treacherous Curse, follows the Victorian adventuress as she learns of an ancient Egyptian curse walking the streets of London. Raybourn is also the author of the Lady Julia Grey series. Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister has been called “exciting, frightening, and unspeakably moving” by author Erika Robuck. In this “Spunky Spy Saga” as NPR describes it, Kate Warne, America’s first female Pinkerton detective hits the Civil War-era Chicago streets, where respect is hard to come by, but danger is not. Macallister’s debut novel The Magician’s Lie was a USA Today bestseller and Target Book club selection.
