Publisher's Summary

England, 1919. In Anna Lee Huber's latest mystery, former Secret Service agent Verity Kent is finding that life after wartime offers its own share of danger....

The Great War may be over, but for many, there are still obstacles on the home front. Reconciling with her estranged husband makes Verity sympathetic to her friend Ada's marital difficulties. Bourgeois-bred Ada, recently married to the Marquess of Rockham, is overwhelmed trying to navigate the ways of the aristocracy. And when Lord Rockham is discovered shot through the heart with a bullet from Ada's revolver, Verity fears her friend has made a fatal blunder.

While striving to prove Ada's innocence, Verity is called upon for another favor. The sister of a former Secret Service colleague has been killed in what authorities believe was a home invasion gone wrong. The victim's war work - censoring letters sent by soldiers from the front - exposed her to sensitive, disturbing material. Verity begins to suspect these two unlikely cases may be linked. But as the connections deepen, the consequences- not just for Verity, but for Britain - grow more menacing than she could have imagined.

Good Book, Terrible Narrator

Love Huber’s book, I buy every one immediately... but if they continue with this narrator I will have to stick to ebook. She puts the wrong emphasis on almost every word and the end of pretty much every sentence lilts up like a question. Unbelievably annoying. Makes it very hard to stay in the narrative and Huber narratives are worth staying in!

Such an interesting series

Really enjoying this series. I have to admit I haven't cared for Sydney in the past. Find him irritating at times and didn't like that he put Verity through so much pain and caused her to do things she can't take back. Always been more team Max. Love his character with Verity. Oh well...author's choice. The marriage is finally making progress and the story really is good and has several surprises. Looking forward to what's next and hope the villain finally gets his due.

PLEASE

do something about Heather Wilds. I'm sure she's lovely but her narration is so grating!

Love this series!

After the first in this series, I immediately searched and downloaded the next two. I admire the strength of Verity, the developing sensitivity of Sydney, and the narration of Ms. Wilds. Her tone and inflections are ideal for these characters and I look forward to more.
