Blog Tour- Secrets in the Stone by Tessa Harris

On tour this week- Secrets in the Stone(A Doctor Silkstone Mystery) by Tessa Harris. Released on February 23rd.








Series: Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mystery
Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Kensington (February 23, 2016)
Language: English



Within the mysteries of the body, especially those who have been murdered, 18th-century anatomist Dr. Thomas Silkstone specializes in uncovering the tell-tale clues that lead towards justice…

Newly released from the notorious asylum known as Bedlam, Lady Lydia Farrell finds herself in an equally terrifying position--as a murder suspect--when she stumbles upon the mutilated body of Sir Montagu Malthus in his study at Boughton Hall.

Meanwhile Dr. Thomas Silkstone has been injured in a duel with a man who may or may not have committed the grisly deed of which Lydia is accused. Despite his injury, Thomas hopes to clear his beloved's good name by conducting a postmortem on the victim. With a bit of detective work, he learns that Montagu's throat was slit by no ordinary blade, but a ceremonial Sikh dagger from India--a clue that may be connected to the fabled lost mines of Golconda.

From the mysterious disappearance of a cursed diamond buried with Lydia's dead husband, to the undying legend of a hidden treasure map, Thomas must follow a trail of foreign dignitaries, royal agents--and even more victims--to unveil the sinister and shocking secrets in the stones…

This fast-paced drama filled with action and suspense will have you reading through the night. The characters and storyline are so inviting and captivated from the start. If you like Historical read then this is a book you won't want to miss out on. This is the first one I have read by this author and I enjoyed it and plan to go back to read more.
