Matthew, the third Reavley sibling and an intelligence expert, suddenly arrives at the front with startling news: The Peacemaker's German counterpart has offered to go to England and expose his co-conspirator as a traitor. But with war still raging and prejudices inflamed, such a journey would be fraught with hazards, especially since the Peacemaker has secret informers everywhere, even on the battlefield.
For richness of plot, character, and feeling, We Shall Not Sleep is unmatched. Anne Perry's brilliantly orchestrated finale is a heartstopping tour de force, mesmerizing and totally satisfying.
Listen to another novel in Anne Perry's World War One series.

Retired bookkeeper, married, Mom of 2, two granddaughters. Love cozy mysteries.
I never liked History in school. Just boring facts to me. However, I am so glad I came upon this series by A.P. Now that I am an adult I can see the subject in a new light and this author has helped me to not only learn about this time in history, but enjoy it! Perhaps she will see fit to write a series about WW 2, with the same characters?? That would be great! You can read the synopsis to discover what the book and the series are about. I just wanted to say here that, for me, it is one of those series that you look back upon with fondness and there was a bit of sadness when it ended. For those who are interested, there are no "F-bombs", and no sexual situations.
I have truly loved all five "listens" of this very intruiging series! Very worth while!
Felt this book kind of dragged on, repeating some of the same introspective scenes and dialogs from elsewhere in the series. Overall I think it was a good series, but could have been cut down to 4 books after removing redundancies and scenes that don't drive the book forward.
