“[A] magic kingdom of Victorian murder and intrigue.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
Thomas Pitt is now the powerful head of Britain’s Special Branch, and some people fear that he may have been promoted beyond his abilities. His own self-doubt is fueled by rumors of a plot to blow up connections on the Dover-London rail line, on which Austrian duke Alois Habsburg is soon to travel. But why destroy an entire train to kill one obscure Austrian royal? Are the rumors designed to distract police from an even more devastating plot? Meanwhile, in a London sickroom, an old Italian woman is terrified that as she sinks into dementia, she may divulge secrets from her career as a revolutionary spy. And behind the doors of a stately manor, a beautiful young Croatian woman hoards mysteries of her own. Pitt and his clever wife, Charlotte, need these two fascinating women to tell them things they desperately need to know—before death and terror ignite an international catastrophe.
 
Includes a preview of Anne Perry’s next Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel, Midnight at Marble Arch.

A bit slow and complicated at the beginning .However it turned out quite exciting at the end.

Another Charlotte and homas Pitt Victorian mystery. Does not disappoint. Best read in series order.

Interesting plot involving the turmoil in Europe the proceeded World War I. A bit slow going at the start. Since Pitt is now involved in intelligence work there is more political intrigue than in the early books. Still a good read if you like the period and characters.
