    Very strange.

    I love Tracy/Teresa Grant books, but this is a rewrite of another book in the series. Daughter of the Game/Secrets of a lady covered this plot line, but there are changes, very significant changes to a story that has been told already. Told better in my opinion. Disappointing. There are other stories to tell about these two beloved characters. No need to rehash and rewrite. Author must be in a dry soell.

    I was disappointed in this book. I have been following the series from the Charles and Melanie Fraser days and thought that the author wanted us to know that these were the same characters, with different names due to a change in publishers. That being said, the big reveal about Suzanne's past had already been covered in the book 'Secrets of a Lady."

    I have been a big fan of this author's books, both as Teresa Grant and as Tracy Grant. I don't think that this was one of her better efforts.

    The opportunity to review this title could not have come at a better time! I had heard of Teresa Grant’s historical mysteries, and had wanted to read them, so I jumped at the offer to read this one. 




    The seventh (or 9th installment if you count the two novellas) in this series that mixes intrigue and political wrangling with British aristos, romance, and personal and family secrets into a gripping tale full of a sense of the time and place, historical references and plenty of heart. 




    Suzanne and Malcolm are now residing in the house on Berkeley Square: both have decidedly retired from the spy game, and are concerned with raising their two children, Colin and Jessica. Together they are a formidable pair: even with the secrets still between them that could derail their relationship, and the secret they are working to find the answers to now could threaten more than just their own relationship. 




    A script that could be another version of Hamlet has appeared, and the consensus is that there is a code buried within the script.  Malcolm’s handler, Carfax, has again requested that he solve the mystery, one that reaches back to a dispatch case that was raided in Ireland some 20 years earlier. Several characters are introduced: each with a reason to withhold the truth, or share only pieces, and Malcolm and Suzanne are working to put all of the pieces together. 




    Unfortunately, Suzanne has several secrets that could unravel her relationship with Malcolm, and as more agents for the French, the British and potential dual-leanings are unearthed, along with hints to an art smuggling ring  and other blackmail efforts from Malcolm’s purported father, the twists never end. While there are several characters, each with their own credible and well-defined stories, they are rarely confusing; Grant not only manages to keep characters and their myriad of ties in the story easy to follow for readers, but provides a clear listing of the Dramatis Personae in the beginning of the story for easy reference.  




    I was completely engrossed in this story as it progressed, with little bits of information shared with readers as Malcolm or Suzanne shared information, or started to piece the story together.  Each solution and puzzle piece that fits in only serves to generate several more questions, and the story continues to hold readers in a spell, guessing and wondering where the next shoe will drop. 




    There is a terrific sense of place and time, with varied insertions of quiet domestic life and parenting from Malcolm and Suzanne, giving the story warmth and grounding their connection in a reality that shines through the mystery and questions.  I was completely surprised at the final answers, and yet, it was the only possible solution to the mysteries that were wound tighter than a Gordian Knot.  A lovely installment in the series, continuing the stories of Suzanne and Malcolm and developing more information about the others in the series that readers have come to know. This is an intelligently crafted and presented mystery that can be savored as it is enjoyed. 




    I received a Paperback copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
