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.

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.
