Members of an Egyptian expedition fall victim to an ancient mummy’s curse in this thrilling Veronica Speedwell novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey mysteries.

London, 1888. As colorful and unfettered as the butterflies she collects, Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell can’t resist the allure of an exotic mystery—particularly one involving her enigmatic colleague, Stoker.

5.0 A Treacherous Curse
I knew when I read the opening chapter about phalluses that this book was going to be good! Lol : ) I think it's the best out of the three actually. I loved the Egyptology and archaeology storyline. It reminded me a little of one of my all-time favorite series, the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth...

4.0 A Treacherous Curse (Veronica Speedwell, #3)
I love Veronica Speedwell. Her character is almost everything I admire in a person, with the exceptions of her penchants for collecting butterflies, necessitating her killing them, and her need to verbalise her sexual liberty.
