3.0 out of 5 stars `What are you going to do?' Dec 4 2010
By Jennifer Cameron-Smith TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This novel is set in 1895, at a time when political unrest was rising all over Europe. The threat of anarchy and the potential for violence had European governments nervous. England's Special Branch knew of a current plot, but not yet who the leaders were, or who the target might be. Inspector Thomas Pitt, in pursuit of a suspected terrorist, finds himself in France. Shortly afterwards, Pitt's superior officer Victor Narraway is accused of causing the death of an Irish informant, and is removed from office.

Because Pitt is Narraway's protégé, his career is also potentially in jeopardy. Pitt's wife Charlotte is determined to help Narraway clear his name and travels to Ireland with him. It soon becomes clear that Special Branch itself may have been compromised: can Thomas Pitt and Victor Narraway join forces to stop the plotters before it is too late?

This is the 26th novel in Anne Perry's Thomas Pitt series, and while it's okay it didn't hold my attention the way that some earlier novels have. I suspect that those who've read the series in order will find this latest instalment interesting because of further developments in the lives of the main characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saving Narraway...and someone else June 21 2012
By Rosanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While Pitt is in France after anarchists and socialist, Narraway is dismissed from Special Branch. Being Narraway the one who trusts Pitt and will not abandon him in a foreign country, Charlotte goes to Ireland with Narraway to find the truth on a plot which involves more that Pitt's or Narraway's lives or future...
This novel has a good rythm and keeps the interest alive,not only with the plot but also considering the feelings of the main characters.
I also like the notion of a new housemaid similar to Gracie (now happily married: I'd missed her!)
The description of the towns and their atmosphere is also really entartaining.
I found it really good, despite my preferring the novels before Pitt's involvement in Special Branch.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best Aug. 22 2012
By Richard Middleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am a great fan of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, and own them all. This seems to me to be the weakest of the collection. The plot convolutions are ingenious and well up to Anne Perry's usual standard, but about one-third of the way through I found myself, to my amazement, losing interest. [Spoiler alert!] Charlotte's expedition to Ireland, masquerading as Narraway's half-sister, didn't convince me: passing herself off as an O'Neil while amongst the O'Neil clan and a society acutely aware of kinships and loyalties seemed extremely unlikely, and Narraway's escape from prison culminating in a confession from the killer while his pursuers obligingly waited outside the door so that they could overhear everything also strained belief. The final third of the book, with Charlotte and Thomas back in England and unraveling the convolutions within the Special Branch, was far better, although there was little to explain why apparently loyal civil servants such as Croxdale and Gower should have become revolutionaries. As an aside, it was good to see the delightful Gracie back in a cameo, and I hope that her replacement, Minne Maude, will be a permanent addition to the cast!
