In London, Special Branch officers Pitt and Gower chase after West who has information they need to thwart a treasonous plot with international involvement against the government. West dodges the two operatives until Wrexham slices his throat. Pitt and Gower chase after Wrexham while West bleeds to death. As Pitt pursues Wrexham from Britain to across the Channel to St. Malo, France, his supervisor Victor Narraway is accused of embezzling government funds. A desperate Narraway asks Pitt's wife, Charlotte, who has helped her husband on cases before (see Buckingham Palace Gardens), to assist him. Since his accuser relaxes in Dublin, Charlotte poses as Narraway's sister who travels with him to Ireland to investigate the individual who has a highly regarded reputation. Neither Narraway nor either Pitt realizes someone diabolical is the connection in England, Ireland and the continent. This is a great Victorian espionage thriller that once again effortlessly blends history inside an action-packed suspense. The story line is fast-paced yet contains a strong late nineteenth century feel to the plot. However, the tale belongs to the beleaguered trio who struggle to thwart a clever villain from insuring the sun sets on the British Empire. Harriet Klausner

Thank you Anne Perry for another page turning adventure. If you enjoy historical mysteries full of interesting characters and suspense, then you will enjoy Ms. Perry's Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series; the 20+ books in the series do not need to be read in order. Treason at Lisson Grove takes Thomas to France and Charlotte and Narraway to Ireland in an attempt by Terrorists to infiltrate Special Branch and upsurge Great Britain. It's amazing that so much about each charater's adventure and story can be covered in 300 pages. I esp. enjoyed learning more about the private Victor Narraway's past and his admiration of Charlotte. As always, the Pitt's home life was charming and lively, as is Great Aunt Vespasia. This book was a long time coming, but well worth the wait. I have read and enjoyed all of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books, as well as the Hestor and William Monk series, the WWI series about the Reavley Family and the annual Christmas books...Ms. Perry does not disappoint.

We're treated to a new Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel in this historical thriller. Lisson Grove is the location of Pitt's organization, always called Special Branch. In the bang-up beginning, Pitt and Gower, another agent, pursue a man they witnessed standing over a newly dead body. The chase takes them across the channel to St. Malo in France. There, a plot seems to be gathering head, something boding of violence and a fundamental change that, once done, may not be able to be undone. Pitt is set adrift, cut off from his employer and his family, not knowing who he can trust. Back home, Victor Narraway, Pitt's superior is floundering, running into charges and accusations that he can't fight. When he informs Charlotte that Pitt has been suddenly called overseas, and when she realizes what an awful situation Narraway is in, she feels she must help him-partly for his sake, but also because Pitt's job depends on Narraway's continued employment. The roots of the present-day plot seem intertwined with an old episode that took place during a thwarted Irish uprising. So Narraway and Charlotte, posing as half-siblings, take off for Dublin where feelings still run deep against the English and Narraway in particular. Now it's Charlotte who doesn't know who she can trust. To complicate things even more, Charlotte's housekeeper, whom the family doesn't care for anyway, quits suddenly and Charlotte must provide for someone to watch the children, Jemima and Daniel. A charming new character, Minnie Maude, is introduced and saves the domestic day. Narraway's problems-it becomes evident-are becoming looming problems for Pitt as well. Disaster piles atop disaster and the targets shift and remain unclear as Charlotte and Pitt separately, try to save their country from a treacherous, treasonous plot. Perry is still at the top of her form. Reviewed by Kaye George, Author of "Choke", for Suspense Magazine

My favorite characters of Anne Perry's. Got this one on audio so I could listen while I crochet. I was nOt sure how I would feel about it since we all seem to put our own voices to characters when we read, but I must say that Michael Page does an excellent job and has a marvelous voice to listen too! Will be going audio again........

I had stopped reading Anne Perry, bored to distraction by all the "what-ifs" as the characters analyzed a situation ad nauseum. Plots, which in earlier Monk and Pitt books had at least kept my interest, became less satisfying in later volumes. I stopped reading the World War I books after the first one. So, it was with some misgiving that I picked this one up, after reading some of the reviews; I am so glad I did! It honestly is the best one of hers I have read, and I have read many (early to mid years). The action is compelling; I turned off a favorite show to keep reading. The characters develop in perhaps surprising yet human ways, but always remain interesting. From a chase through London, across the English Channel to France, and (best of all) in Ireland, with Charlotte and Narraway, the action just takes over (oh, and the emotions do pretty well, too:) Best of all--there are many fewer "what-ifs"! I was far from annoyed, I was entranced.

This book is for anyone who enjoys mystery mixed with history. Excellent characters and wonderful descriptions of the era. I have read the entire series and this one was hard to put down. Some very interesting twists to the story which really keep you going.
