Not my favorite in the series, but I will keep on with it as I really liked the first two books. Frankly, I'm getting really tired of Joseph, the chaplain. He is really a bore and always comes off (literally) preachy. There was also an awkward attempt to get older sister, Hannah, into the plot. Overall, I have more of a "to be continued" feeling with this one than the first two. I hope the next book gives a little more balanced attention to all four siblings and gets back to what drew me into this series to begin with.

Anne Perry mysteries are set in England at different periods of history. This 2005 book is an intriguing and suspenseful story

An intense saga of love, hate, obsession, and murder that features an honorable English family--brothers Joseph and Matthew Realey and their sisters, Judith and Hannah.

Perry's kaleidoscopic novel illuminates an entire world, from the hell of the trenches to a London nightclub where a beautiful Irish spy plies her trade, from the sequestered laboratory where a weapon that can end the war is beigh perfected to the matchless glory of the English countryside in spring. A masterpiece that warms the heart even as it chills the blood.

Perry's characters keep getting better. Angels in the gloom shows how some can keep their faith despite incredible odds and those who can't. The hunt for a traitor dominates this installment of Perry's WWI series. Each one is better than the last.

Once ageain, the sinister figure who calls himself the Peacemaker is plotting to kill."
