This was a very long (I thank the author), very complicated and intriguing plot. I have never been as drawn to a series as I am to this series of regency novels. In my opinion, this is the author’s most ambitious and lengthy plot yet. A very large, intertwined cast of characters are listed in the beginning of the book. That was so helpful as many times I had to refer to it while trying to keep all the plot twists straight. And plot twists are many in this latest book. I do own that all of the ma ...more

Great read as usual - Tracy Grant has a real gift for presenting you the twists and turns of a spy novel and mystery and then keeping you going until there is a resolution. The Rannoch's are again involved in what seems like a simple murder investigation. But as always there is much more to the case than the obvious and pretty soon there are a number of suspects and plenty of motives - enough to keep the pages turning until the finish. And of course, Tracy never completely resolves all the issue ...more

Another great chapter in the historical series. Threads/story lines from previous books resolved and new ones presented. I love the characters and all the inter-relationships. Including children makes the risks riskier, but also makes the characters more human and realistic.

Be prepared for excitement, suspense, and danger in this latest offering of the Rannoch mystery/spy series. The sudden disappearance of Malcolm's sister, Gisele, from the holiday celebrations at Dunmykel sends Malcolm and company rushing back to London. There, they are informed of a surprising murder, an unlikely arrest, and mysterious events surrounding Gisele, all compounded by Malcolm's ever present nemesis, the Elsinore League. Tracy Grant delivers in creating this novel filled with unexpect ...more

Shelves: melodrama
1 1/2 stars.

Which is the best way to describe this novel: a long slog that felt like it went nowhere; a melodrama that would put the CW to shame (and might be able to pass as a soap opera); or a repetition of the past few novels?

So, Gisele, Malcolm's sister, runs off with Tommy Belmont, who works for the Elsinore League, our main characters' enemy. Her reasons for doing so are not romantic, but no one has the slightest idea why she's left, so we end up in London with them trying to find her, lik

This is a great series, and the current instalment does not disappoint. With new revelations, challenges and dilemmas for these favorite and oft-tried characters, I blitzed through the book, biting my nails until the end, which was surprising and satisfying, as endings in this series are...with the promise of a new fight in the future. Can't wait!
