Angels in the Gloom is an intense saga of love, hate, obsession, and murder that features an honorable English family: brothers Joseph and Matthew Reavley, and their sisters, Judith and Hannah.

In March 1916, Joseph, a chaplain at the front, and Judith, an ambulance driver, are fighting not only the Germans but the bitter cold and the appalling casualties of the Battle of Somme. Scarcely less at risk, Matthew, an officer in England's Secret Intelligence Service, fights the war covertly from London. Only Hannah, living with her young children in the old family home in tranquil Cambridgeshire, seems safe.

Appearances, however, are deceiving. By the time Joseph returns home, rumors of spies and traitors are rampant in Cambridgeshire. And when the body of a savagely murdered weapons scientist is discovered in a village byway, the fear that haunts the battlefields settles over the town - along with the shadow of the obsessed ideologue who murdered the four siblings' parents on the eve of the war. Once again, this icy, anonymous powerbroker, the Peacemaker, is plotting to kill.

Perry's kaleidoscopic new novel illuminates an entire world, from the hell of the trenches to a London nightclub where a beautiful Irish spy plies her trade; from the sequestered laboratory where a weapon that can end the war is being perfected to the matchless glory of the English countryside in spring. Angels in the Gloom is a masterpiece, steeped in history and radiant with truth. It warms the heart even as it chills the blood. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This third book in Anne Perry's WWI series is excellent--and it's worth reading the two that came before it just to get the background for this one. They are good in themselves, but this one is even better. There's more at stake, personally, and the story is more engaging. A really good read, but only if you've read the first two. Perry is a great writer. "

    " the conspiracy bit is getting a little old, but so much of this is so wonderful. Great prose, fascinating characters, terrific summing up of what to believe in the middle of hell. "

    " The last in the series - the ultimate bad guy is a bit too predictable, but watching Joseph go through the trials of the soul is worth the trip. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by K.M. Weiland | 2/12/2014

    " The best of the series so far (which isn't saying much), but still bogged down by ridiculous character motivations, far too much internal monologing, and an unrealistic and disappointing solution to the murder mystery. "
