1896. Newly promoted to Head of Special Branch, Thomas Pitt is forced to face the danger his new position brings when he uncovers the work of a traitor in his department. Not knowing who to trust, he must unmask the conspirator, whist simultaneously protecting a suspected target, Austrian state visitor Duke Alois.

Meanwhile, Victor Narraway is investigating the mysterious death of Serafina Monserrat. Once the holder of many sensitive, political secrets, Serafina had suffered from dementia in her later years and Narraway is unsure whether what he has uncovered in his search for answers is the confused ramblings of an old woman, or a catastrophic plot which could trigger a war the likes of which the world has never seen before.

As the two investigations come ever closer it is clear that bluff and double-bluff are at play. When Pitt finally comes face to face with the suspected traitor will he, knowing the fate of the world is at stake, find the strength to stop the man by any means necessary?

A bit slow and complicated at the beginning .However it turned out quite exciting at the end.

Another Charlotte and homas Pitt Victorian mystery. Does not disappoint. Best read in series order.

Interesting plot involving the turmoil in Europe the proceeded World War I. A bit slow going at the start. Since Pitt is now involved in intelligence work there is more political intrigue than in the early books. Still a good read if you like the period and characters.
