Overview

A Woman's Innocence by Gayle Callen

In the final instalment of Gayle Callen's exciting Spies and Lovers trilogy, a mad–dash search for truth brings together an unlikely pair – a woman accused of treason, and the man who convicted her...

Now that he finally has the infamous traitor, Julia Reed, in jail, you would think English agent Samuel Sherryngton would be pleased to see justice served. But circumstances aren't always what they appear to be, and the facts aren't adding up. Soon Sam has doubts over her guilt which, of course, has nothing to do with the attraction for Julia he's been fighting against for so many years. Not willing to see her executed for a crime she may not have committed, Sam defies the laws of England and breaks Julia out of jail. What initially began as a search to find proof convicting Julia quickly turns into a quest to prove her innocence. Can this bold and dashing pair discover the truth and still find time for love?

In 1844 Leeds, spy Sam Sherryngton finds it hard to believe that his childhood friend Julia Reed betrayed her country resulting in the slaughter of 16000 soldiers at the Khyber Pass in Afghanistan. Still he did his job and she lingers in a nearby jail awaiting extradition to London to stand trial, a formality as the evidence is so overwhelming. --- Still one thing bothers Sam which involves the time sequence of the death of the mother of the government¿s key witness Edwin Hume. Deciding to ask Edwin a few more questions, Sam finds instead a dying man.. In his last breath Edwin tells Sam that Julia is innocent; her brother General Lewis Reed is the traitor. As Edwin dies, two constables arrive. They accuse Sam of murder to help Julia. He escapes and shortly afterward frees Julia. As they run for their lives, Julia refuses to believe her sibling would set her up like this. Sam hopes to keep them alive while seeking proof that Lewis is a traitor and a killer. He never expected to fall in love too.--- This solid Victorian thriller is more an action yarn than a romance though fans of the latter will appreciate the growing love between the lead couple. The story line is fast-paced as Sam and Julia go on the lam with little hope of convincing authorities without concrete proof that a British general officer sold the country out; getting that proof is the fun of this tale. The ending will surprise the audience though historical readers will know the realism of the decision that just wraps up final tale of the ¿Spies and Lovers¿ trilogy in triumph.--- Harriet Klausner

IF YOU DIDN'T READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS IN THE SERIES YOU WILL NOT ENJOY THIS LAST ONE AS MUCH.THERE ARE MORE CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY EMOTIONS HERE THAT WERE NEVER REVELED IN THE PRIOR STORIES. ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 IT IS ONLY A 4-WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IF SAM MADE LOVE TO JULIA IN BED SOMETIMES INSTEAD OF EVERYWHERE ELSE.NEVER THE LESS THE THREE BOOKS ARE WORTH READING AND IT IS A SHAME THERE WEREN'T MORE 'SPIES' FOR MORE BOOKS TO BE WRITTEN ABOUT.
