Featuring: Joseph Reavley
Add to Wish List
On a sunny afternoon in late June 1914, Cambridge professor
Joseph Reavley learns that his parents have died in an
automobile crash. Joseph’s brother, an officer in the
Intelligence Service, reveals that their father had been en
route to London with a mysterious secret document–
allegedly possessing the power to disgrace England and
destroy the civilized world. Now, that explosive paper has
vanished, and Joseph is left to wonder: How had it fallen
into the hands of his father, a quiet countryman? But
Joseph is soon burdened with a second tragedy: the shocking
murder of his most gifted student, who was loved and
admired by everyone. Or so it appeared. And as England’s
seamless peace begins to crack, the distance between the
murder of an Austrian archduke and the death of a brilliant
student grows shorter every day.
