4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Damaskcat HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Oct 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is 1939 and the country is on the brink of World War II. Verity Browne is engaged to Lord Edward Corinth and is wavering in her lifetime of support for the Communist Party. Edward has been tasked with trying to find out who is planning to assassinate Winston Churchill. Joseph Kennedy, American Ambassador to the UK, and his charismatic family appear in the story.

Verity wants to interview Kennedy as part of her job as a journalist and has also been instructed to get close to him by her Communist Party boss, David Griffiths-Jones; Edward wants to find out whether the assassin is a member of the embassy staff. Both are invited as guests to Cliveden - the home of the Astors - which is where the trouble begins.

The book has realistic characters and dialogue which brings the late 1930s vividly to life. I found all the background information about the politics of the time interesting as well as Verity's struggle with her conscience. I thought the previous book in this series - 'Something Wicked' - was not as good as previous volumes, but this one is well up to standard and I enjoyed reading it. I am looking forward to reading the latest one - 'Sweet Sorrow'. If you want crime novels which are reminiscent of the Golden Age of detective fiction then you will probably enjoy this series.

This whodunit, set in the build up to the 2nd World War in Europe, evokes the anxiety and indecision of the time, as well as having an unusual sleuthing combination of an aristocrat and a Communist. The treachery of political ambition and the inequalities of the time are well described, and there is enough detective activity to keep any crime addict happy, I would have thought. No blood and guts, rather a story in which a death or two are explained against a backdrop of imminent war. I have read all of David Roberts' books up to this one in the series, and they have improved steadily from a good start as the characters have become more developed.

It is exciting from start to finish. Another good whodunit. Also I always like the historical element to this series of books.
