Scroll all the way to the end for more. For a Brontesque/Pym detailed/Mystery novel, I turna gain to Deann Raybourn with another Lady Julia Grey mystery called Dark Road to Darjeeling. Her other novels could be dark, Bronte nightmares mixed with a little Bram Stoker, especially Silent on the Moor, which also includes a doll or two and a doll house. Raybourn also writes a vampire novel now and then, but the chemistry that plays between the Holmesian Lord Brisbane [who casts a shadow of Mr. Darcy] and Lady Julia, is immensely satisfying and entertaining. You can almost smell the spice and taste the curry.
