This novel kicks off a new suspense series by bestselling author Anne Perry, who puts to effective use her talent for detailing the fine historical minutiae but moves her period setting from Victorian London to Cambridge on the eve of World War I.
When peace-loving professor and chaplain Joseph Reavley and his intelligence officer brother, Matthew, investigate the sudden deaths of their parents, they discover that their father had been in possession of a document implicating the highest echelons of British society in a terrible act of treason. Obviously, with the country on the brink of war, this document threatens the security of Europe.
As the pacifist professor goes head-to-head with his soldier brother, Perry adds an extra twist to an already engaging, action-filled plot. An intriguing political thriller and a grounded whodunit peppered with jealous lovers, blackmail, and underhanded university dealings, No Graves as Yet weaves several story threads into a breathtaking climax. Here is a fascinating, triumphant first installment in what will undoubtedly become another enduring mystery series from Anne Perry. Tom Piccirilli
