On a sunny afternoon in late June, Cambridge professor Joseph Reavley is summoned from a student cricket match to learn that his parents have died in an automobile crash. Joseph's brother, Matthew, an officer in the Intelligence Service, reveals that their father had been en route to London to turn over to him a mysterious secret document—allegedly with the power to disgrace England forever and destroy the civilized world. A paper so damning that Joseph and Matthew dared mention it only to their restless sister. Now it has vanished.

What has happened to this explosive document, if indeed it ever existed? How had it fallen into the hands of their father, a quiet countryman? Not even Matthew, with his Intelligence connections, can answer these questions. And Joseph is soon burdened with a second tragedy: the shocking murder of his most gifted student, handsome Sebastian Allard, loved and admired by everyone. Or so it appeared.

Meanwhile, England's seamless peace is cracking—as the distance between the murder of an Austrian archduke by a Serbian anarchist and the death of a brilliant university student by a bullet to the head becomes shorter with each day.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 2/18/2014

    " In a word.... depressing. Well written, but not enough to make me read another by the same author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Howard | 2/7/2014

    " I have read and liked Anne Perry's other mysteries set in Victorian England but this new series set during WWI has really mesmerized me. I am now on book four and wait for the disclosure of who the Peacemaker is "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 2/7/2014

    " very good book, kept you on your seat until the end, one of a series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine Lynch | 1/31/2014

    " Did not measure up to the beginning. I'll try another Ann Perry title and see what I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb Gilbertson | 1/30/2014

    " Picked this up for the WWI story line as well as murder mystery. The book seemed to drag a little at times. The description of pre-war England was beautiful and the relationship between the two brothers is interesting as they try to solve their parents murder. Hope the next in the series picks up a little. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Annette | 1/24/2014

    " #3 I didn't care for this book at all. I didn't care for any of the characters and found it uninteresting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 1/21/2014

    " Sooooo overwritten.. Everything telegraphed a mile away... Male characters incredibly and unrealistically emotional and dramatic... Depressing that this woman is such a bestselling author. I guess she found a niche and made it her own. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirlyn | 1/18/2014

    " Just decided to return to the library as almost 1/2 way into it I found I really didn't care what happend or how it ended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clayton Brannon | 1/7/2014

    " Great read. Recommended by friend as was not disappointed. Look forward to reading the second in this series about WWI. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gay | 12/21/2013

    " Only so so. This book starts out OK, but the ending is too contrived and a disappointment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenni | 12/1/2013

    " I have read a lot of Anne Perry's novels. I have enjoyed the Thomas Pitt and Monk series so I was excited when I saw this series on the shelf at the library by Ms. Perry. But I was unable to become absorbed into book. It seemed to drag and drag. Maybe I'll try it again someday...or maybe not. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Ellen | 9/30/2013

    " A disappointment. The writing was mediocre at best, the characters dull. The author has obviously done a lot of research on the time period -- much trivia integrated into the text -- but this is not enough to persuade me to read the rest of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsey Smith | 7/8/2013

    " Not my favorite Anne Perry novel. Her other series are much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 2/14/2012

    " This book seemed to start very slowly and there were many parts were I zoned out while listening. Having said that, Anne Perry is still an incredible author and I will try the second in the series before I give up on it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Andrews | 11/11/2011

    " Wonderfully written cozy mystery set in England on the verge of WWI. "

    " Great series depicting World War I. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 3/1/2011

    " I liked it fine. It was a book about the beginning of WWI and had a mystery associated to it as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary G. | 11/12/2010

    " Good to very good introduction to Ms. Perry's new series. "

    " I can always depend on a good read when I pick up an Anne Perry book. She is very thorough with her use of description and her plot development. What a great story. Well done! Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford, award-winning author of "The Whistling Bishop" and "F-Stop: A Life in Pictures". "

    " I enjoyed this book, although it is dark and tragic. "
