Overview

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Chloe Gong comes two captivating new novellas surrounding the events of Foul Lady Fortune and following a familiar cast of characters from the These Violent Delights Duet!

In A Foul Thing, Roma and Juliette have established themselves as the heads of an underground weapons ring in Zhouzhuang, making a living the way they do best while remaining anonymous in their peaceful, quiet life. But when they hear about several Russian girls showing up dead in nearby towns, they decide to investigate-and ultimately discover that this mystery is much closer to home than they ever imagined.

In This Foul Murder, Benedikt and Marshall have been summoned by Roma to find the elusive scientist, Lourens, and bring him to Zhouzhuang. Time is of the essence aboard the week-long Trans-Siberian Express, but when someone is murdered on board, Benedikt and Marshall convince the officer in charge not to stop the train so that they aren't thrown off-schedule. Instead, they pretend that they are investigators and promise they can solve the murder, but as they dig deeper, they realize that the murder might having surprising ties to their own mission...

This volume containing two novellas from the world of These Violent Delights presents new mysteries featuring familiar faces.

In A Foul Thing, Roma Montagov and Juliette Cai’s life of wedded bliss in Zhouzhuang township is disrupted by a ghost from their past. It’s 1931, 4 years since they faked their own deaths in the explosion that rocked Shanghai, when a young man approaches them with a request to protect his fiancee. After Roma and Juliette save the woman from an assailant, she reveals that she once participated in an experiment conducted by a group of Russian scientists and Lourens Van Dijk, the man whose serum made Rosalind, Juliette’s cousin, immortal. Alarmed by Van Dijk’s involvement, the couple decide to probe deeper, and the answers they find compel them to ask old friends for help. Things pick up a few months later in This Foul Murder, when lovers Benedikt Montagov and Marshall Seo board the Trans-Siberian Express to find Van Dijk and bring him to Zhouzhuang. A gruesome murder at the start of the journey threatens to disrupt the train schedule, so Benedikt and Marshall take matters into their own hands and begin investigating to find the killer. The stories, while action-packed and full of danger, are less harrowing than the characters’ previous adventures. Flirty banter and tender moments between both couples are liberally sprinkled throughout, making for entertaining interludes that set the stage for the next book.

Will delight shippers and whet fans’ appetites. (Historical fantasy. 13-18)
