Publisher's Summary

With the threat of war looming over the Continent now that Napoleon has reseized the throne of France, London is abuzz with intrigue as diplomats from the European powers gather to negotiate a military alliance against him. But Lady Arianna and her husband, the Earl of Saybrook, are intent on staying clear of the conflict, deciding it's a battle for nations and armies to fight....

Until things turn very personal. When a Prussian diplomat is murdered, two items found in his pocket force Arianna and Saybrook to once again become reluctant allies with the shadowy head of British security and undertake a rescue mission to Brussels, where lies and deceptions swirl within the ballrooms of the British expatriate community as the armies of Wellington and Napoleon prepare to clash.

Love, friendship, loyalty. Trust will be tested as Arianna and Saybrook race against time to unravel a secret code which may hold the key to defeating the advancing French army. And as Arianna finds herself matching wits with Napoleon, it will once again all come down to a matter of luck....

Good mystery.... Narrator not so good

I have enjoyed the stories for this cast of characters. The narrator was tolerable in the first 2 books but the remainder not so much it sounds like she has a lisp and it grates on my nerves. The author has me doing history research on Napoleon his capture and how he returned to power. In these trying times it does give hope that good will win over greed, thirst for power and the evil of men in power.

A lot happening

There are a lot of characters in this book. A lot of pieces being juggled and the narrator’s voice was particularly grating this time. I don’t know what it was that was different because she’s ready before but it was somehow overly dramatic.

Also, there were glitches in the production so it repeated lines at some points.

Absolutely brilliant series!

This whole series of books have been brilliant from beginning to end. Every book is action packed and an addictive listen.

I highly recommend!!!!
