Publisher's Summary

In 1919 England, in the shadow of The Great War, many look to the spirit world for answers. But it will take an all-too-earthbound intrigue to draw in the discerning heroine of Anna Lee Huber's latest mystery.

It's not that Verity Kent doesn't sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she's discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having enough trouble connecting with her estranged husband, never mind the dead. Still, at a friend's behest, Verity attends a seance, where she encounters the man who still looms between her and Sidney - and a medium who channels a woman Verity once worked with in the Secret Service. Refusing to believe her former fellow spy is dead, Verity is determined to uncover the source of the spiritualist's top-secret revelation.

Then the medium is murdered - and Verity's investigation is suddenly thwarted. Even Secret Service agents she once trusted turn their backs on her. Undaunted, Verity heads to war-torn Belgium, with Sidney by her side. But as they draw ever closer to the danger, Verity wonders if she's about to learn the true meaning of till death do us part.

Excellent story! Need a new narrator!

I’ve enjoyed Verity’s adventures so far. I read the first book in the series and listened to the second. I’m going to have to go back to reading as the narrator left a lot to be desired. She has a strange habit of ending virtually all sentences on a downward tone (sort of like a news reporter on a live newscast). The cadence was off-kilter and she often forgot to change back to her narration voice after delivering a character’s line. Very distracting to what is otherwise a well-layered, historical adventure that gives the reader insight to the aftermath of World War I in England and Europe.

love it

Set in England and Belgium immediately post WW1 Verity is getting acquainted with her husband again. He's having to accept what a brilliant, admired woman who had a completely different life with the Secret Service than what he imagined. very well written and I had no complaints with narration. I'd rate it PG for sex and violence. No swearing. Onto book 3

Verity is magnificent!

Goodness, Variety’s husband is back from the dead, we learn of the service she was involved in during WWI. She definitely is a “modern”!

Left me wanting more

Sigh. Love this author and love all of her stories. And I love this narrator. What a wonderful period mystery, Ms Huber has done it again, arrested our hearts and has written a beautiful and intriguing mystery. I was sad that the book ended and am looking forward to the next installment.

Get something else, not worth credit.

I liked her other series and the first book in this series, but this story was terrible. It’s as if this was written by a different author. Terrible.

narrator not the best

This is the second story I have listened to and in both instances needed to slow down the playback speed. Narrator needs to pay more attention to punctuation or insert some if missing to keep narration from sounding like one long run on sentence. Also, narrator has a distinct sign song cadence that is at times distracting and tiresome to listen to. Overall enjoyed the story, but not the narration.

Great story-wish for better narrator

Narrator is difficult to listen to at times...she needs more expression in her voice. Other narrators on Audible bring the stories to life more effectively. Story is captivating. Good author!

Narration :-(

I was able to listen to this book for only short periods at a time and I struggled to finish it. The story had the makings of being quite interesting however the narrator's style was so terribly monotonous, made worse by a very strange and tedious rhythm, that it made the characters feel stiff, passionless and uninteresting. Totally at odds with the theme of love and wartime courage in the storyline.
