The Dark Enuiry4 StarsMarriage to a private enuiry agent has become a frustrating enterprise for Lady Julia as her husband still strives to protect her from his professional life just as she longs to become a full partner in his endeavors Julia gets her wish after following Brisbane to a clandestine meeting and witnessing what appears to be the murder of a psychic medium As Julia and Brisbane investigate the strange death they must learn to work together or lose everything for the foe they face is willing to sacrifice anyone and anything for their ultimate goalWhile not uite my favorite installment in the series that is reserved for Silent on the Moor The Dark Enuiry is certainly one of the intense and exciting additions and I am sad that it is also the final full length novelThe highlight of the story is the development of Brisbane and Julia s relationship as they finally begin working together both in and outside of the marriage bed Brisbane comes to accept that he cannot protect Julia from every danger and that the best he can do is provide her with the necessary tools and information for her to deal with the darker and seedier side of his work Likewise Julia comes to realize not only the very real risks involved in being Brisbane s partner but also the extent of his love for her and the lengths he will got to in order to keep her safeThey mystery is interesting with several compelling twists and turns and one particularly enigmatic character who could Raybourn could do well to give his own series if she were so inclined The villain came as a surprise although in hindsight there are plenty of clues to the ultimate explanationThe secondary characters are well written and add depth and nuance to the story Julia is introduced to additional members of Brisbane s gypsy family and there are also developments in the lives of her own siblings Portia is settling into motherhood Bellmont finds himself in a sticky situation and Plum may finally have met his matchAll in all a solid addition to the series although there are one or two developments that were disappointing such as view spoilerJulia s miscarriage and inability to conceive another child as well as Plum s devastating love life hide spoiler
