Publisher's Summary

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.

    "World War One?"

    This is a so-so, slow mystery with not much history to recommend it - and the history that is there makes me want to ask: Does Perry know anything about WWI?

    I did not think I would ever recommend Follet's "Fall of Giants" as a good listen (awkward dialogue and campy sex scences), but after listening to "No Graves", I'd recommend, even if you like Anne Perry Victorian mysteries as I do -- to pass on her WWI series and download Follet.

    However, if you think WWI was "the good fight" and want a really slow mystery, this might be for you. I gave it two stars for evoking the atmosphere of pre WWI Cambridge and avoiding campy sex scenes. Perhaps over the course of the other novels in the series she makes more historical sense, but I don't think it's worth the credits or listening time to find out.

    "Not a good book!"

    Very dull and Ann Perry doesn't know much about WWI. I was hoping for basic WWI history. But Instead I got a murder mystery.

    "The first of a tremendous series!"

    I have truly loved all five "listens" of this very intruiging series! Very worthwhile!
