A Matter of Loyalty (A Very English Mystery #3)
Kathleen Gray's review

I had not read the earlier books so thanks to Netgalley for the ARC which introduced us. This is a classic British mystery that falls somewhere between a procedural (well, in a castle) and a thriller. Terrifically atmospheric, both in tone and in location (there's a castle!) this focuses on espionage and murder. Hugo Hawksworth's investigation of the murder of a scientist is tied to the leak of secrets to the Russians. Who is the mole? Hugo's certain it's not the dead man. This isn't leCarre- it's not as twisty or complex- but it's a well done Cold War tale of spy versus spy. You don't need to read the previous two books to enjoy this one, which I hope will not be the last for this character, given that the original author has died- her son, Audley, who normally writes in different genres, did a terrific job with this.
