July 1917: Joseph Reavley, a chaplain, and his sister Judith, an ambulance driver, are bone-weary as they approach the fourth year of the conflict; the peace of the English countryside seems a world away.

On the Western Front, the Battle of Passchendaele has begun, and among the many fatalities from Joseph's regiment is the trusted commanding officer, who is replaced by a young major whose pompous incompetence virtually guarantees that many good soldiers will die needlessly.

But soon he, too, is dead - killed by his own men. Although Joseph would like to turn a blind eye, he knows that he must not. Judith, however, anguished at the prospect of courts-martial and executions for the 12 men arrested for the crime, has no such inhibitions and, risking her own life, helps all but one of the prisoners to escape.

Back in England, Joseph's and Judith's brother, Matthew, continues his desperate pursuit to unmask the sinister figure known as the Peacemaker - an obsessed genius who has committed murder and treason in an attempt to stop Britain from winning the war. As Matthew trails the Peacemaker, Joseph tracks his escaped comrades through Switzerland and into enemy territory. His search will lead to a reckoning pitting courage and honor against the blind machinery of military justice. Download and start listening now!

    " This was actually an audio book. I was advised that Anne Perry's books in the WWI period weren't very good. So naturally I liked it very much. Yes, she again had a lot to say about the suffering of war--but she also gave you characters that worry about the moral questions. "

    " Book 4 in a 5 book series about a family trying to uncover a traitor to the British empire during WWI. It is fun brain candy, but I had a hard time relating to the idealistic moral universe of the main characters. In addition, there are so many soldier characters that they are not as fleshed out as Perry's characters sometimes are. "

    " The series is well done, I hope she re-visits Joseph as a character at some point in the future. "
