Thomas Pitt is the powerful head of Britain's Special Branch, and some people fear that he may have been promoted beyond his abilities. He, too, has moments of self-doubt, especially as rumors reach him of a plot to blow up connections on the Dover-London rail line, - on which Austrian duke Alois Habsburg is soon to travel to visit his royal English kin. Why would anyone destroy an entire train to kill one person, or are the rumors designed to distract Pitt from an even more devastating plot?

A very well told story of Thomas Pitt's first major challenge in his new position as head of Special Branch, a major government department . It is wonderfully suspenseful, morally complex, and riveting.
Pitt's efforts to protect the welfare of the nation when he uncovers a possible assassination plan for a visiting Austrian nobleman are hampered by the arrogance and condescension of his fellow department heads who are of a significantly higher social status.
Two key female characters are strong and have lived fascinating lives. One is dying and suffering from dementia. She is haunted by fear that in her less lucid moments she will reveal secrets from 40 years earlier that will cause great difficulties for some of the leading English families, possibly her own murder, and can affect others she loves.
The story is richly detailed and complex, and the characters are well drawn. Ann Perry at her best.
It is beautifully read by Michael Page, a wonderful voice actor.
