Happy Book Birthday to Anna Lee Huber’s MORTAL ARTS!

Tuesday, 3 September 2013  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

Lady Kiera Darby is no stranger to intrigue–in fact, it seems to follow wherever she goes. When an old friend’s pending marriage is thrown into chaos by the arrival of his older brother–and Kiera’s childhood art tutor–William, Kiera steps into help. For ten years Will has been missing, committed to an insane asylum by his own father, and when a local girl goes missing, he’s instantly suspect. Now Kiera must once again employ her knowledge of the macabre and join forced with inquiry agent Sebastian Gage in order to prove the innocense of a beloved family friend–and save the marriage of another…

“Lady Darby is an engaging new sleuth to follow.” -Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author

Strong and lively characters as well as believable family dynamics, however, elevate this above stock genre fare. Furthermore, the underlying mystery deals with a serious, even horrifying, subject—the treatment of the insane in asylums. Readers should be prepared for some grim tales, though credit Huber for not turning this into a treatise on post-traumatic stress disorder. Rather, she assembles a collection of facts that unfold gradually, serving the story rather than the other way around.” –Publishers Weekly  

“Anna Lee Huber has written a fascinating mystery readers won’t be able to put down. MORTAL ARTS is a must read, and is one of those rare books that will both shock and please readers.” – Fresh Fiction
