Very good first book in Anne Perry's WWI series. The murder plots drag on a bit too long, but the there is a wonderful background story of England building up to WW1. The two main characters, Matthew and Josesph interesting characters and looking forward to learning more about them in future books. Very good read.

Not your usual Perry fare but nonetheless is done extremely well. There are murders and treachery but the description Of England before the advent of World War One is the most striking part of this novel. A really remarkable book.

the story isn't as exciting as her victorian london series. good story but i do prefer the monk series and charlotte & thomas pitt murder series. maybe i just enjoy the time frame farther back than the 1910-1920's

This is an accomplished author, always pleasing to read. World War I is a topic of interest to me. This book deals with a mystery on the home front coincident with the beginning of the war -- somewhat plausible. Engaging characters.

This is a new time period for Anne Perry (she usually writes novels set in Victorian England) as it is set in 1914. She is a superior author and this book is no exception. It had excitement and twists and held my interest throughout.

i love Perry but she isn't for everyone. her stories start very slowly, very realistic and dull first 200 pages or so, then very good.

Extremely well written; contains wonderful descriptions of England just prior to WW One. I was glued to the pages; couldn't wait to read the entire series!
