Publisher's Summary

Murder is never far from this sexy couple, even during the holidays!

Their honeymoon abruptly ended by the untimely death of Alcott Howard, Clive and Henrietta return to Highbury, where Clive discovers all is not as it should be. Increasingly convinced that his father’s death was not an accident, Clive launches his own investigation, despite his mother’s belief that he has become “mentally disturbed” with grief. 

Henrietta eventually joins forces with Clive on their first real case, which becomes darker - and deadlier - than they imagined as they get closer to the truth behind Alcott’s troubled affairs. Meanwhile, Henrietta’s sister Elsie begins, at Henrietta’s orchestration, to take classes at a women’s college - an attempt to evade her troubles and prevent any further romantic temptations. When she meets a bookish German custodian at the school, however, he challenges her to think for herself, even as she discovers some shocking secrets about his past life.

Murder & mystery in 1930's Chicago

A Veil Removed is the fourth book in the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series of historical romance novels by best-selling and award-winning author Michelle Cox.

The action picks up right after where the previous story ended. With our two newlyweds, Henrietta and Clive, forced to cut short their honeymoon in the old country, they must return to Chicago when a family member meets his untimely demise. But, what at first glance seems to be an unlucky and unfortunate accident quickly becomes an investigation into a potential cold blooded murder.

Michelle Cox continues to delight and entertain us with her beautiful writing style, her lifelike and believable characters and with her superb talent for descriptions. This saga has gone a long way since its first book and now the characters that we meet are like family to us.

The narrator, Jane Entwistle returns once again to mid 1930’s Chicago and delivers another superb performance. She reads, she acts, she gives life to all of our beloved characters and infuses this amazing story with passion and talent. With her great gift for seamlessly switching between voices and accents, she creates a completely immersive narrative experience for the listener. I can’t think of anyone who could do this better than she does. Jane is for me Henrietta and I hope that she will continue to dazzle us with her narration skills in upcoming audiobooks.

I highly recommend this series to all of those looking for good stories, endearing characters and a touch of mystery and romance. Perfectly capturing the atmosphere of 1930’s Chicago, the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series is truly a beautiful example of literature done right.

Love this Henrietta and inspector series

Just finished the Veil -I was a little concerned about the narration initially but loved it , some parts with Elsie are a little tortuous but is in tune with her troubled head and heart. Well worth the listen. Looking forward to the next book A ring if Truth.
