Summary
On her first mission for MI6, the daring young photographer at the heart of this thrilling new mystery series by bestselling author Anne Perry travels to Mussolini's Italy to rescue the lover who betrayed her.

Britain's secret intelligence service, MI6, has lost contact with its informant in northern Italy, just as important information about the future plans of Austria and Nazi Germany is coming to light. And young Elena Standish, to her surprise, is the only person who can recognize MI6's man--because he is her former lover. Aiden Strother betrayed Elana six years ago, throwing shame on her entire family. Now, with so much to prove, Elena heads to Trieste to track down Aiden and find out what happened to his handler, who has mysteriously cut off contact with Britain.

As Elena gets word of a secret group working to put Austria in the hands of Germany, her older sister, Margot, is in Berlin to watch a childhood friend get married--to a member of the Gestapo. Margot and Elena's grandfather, the former head of MI6, is none too happy about the sisters' travels at this tumultuous time, especially when a violent event at home reminds him that even Britain is growing dangerous. As his own investigation collides with his granddaughter's, what's at stake on the continent becomes increasingly frightening--and personal.

Against the backdrop of a rapidly changing Europe, New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry crafts a novel full of suspense, political intrigue, and the struggle between love and loyalty to country.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Germany, 1933. Before long, the Nazi wolf will be loosed upon Europe. British intelligence, seeing it coming, has a problem: a key agent in Trieste has disappeared. The spymaster believes the fastest way to find him is to send someone who knows him on sight: the woman he betrayed in Perry's 2019 Death in Focus. The woman, Elena Standish, is the victim of a theme popular in old-school spy stories: betrayal of country is also betrayal of love and friendship. Elena's attempt to understand the mystery man who betrayed her takes up about half the novel and is relayed in tense, understated prose with limpid moments: Italian light "touching the ancient stones so tenderly." The other half is a straight-out detective story: a nice man who has information connected to Elena's quest is dead. Accident, say the police. Not so, says a friend, and deductive dazzlement follows. Both plotlines have to do with Germany's annexation of Austria, and we know how that ended. No matter. This manages to be a winning mix of crime story and espionage drama, boat chase and seaplane rescue included."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "At the start of bestseller Perry's excellent sequel to 2019's Death in Focus, likewise set in 1933, Peter Howard, of British Military Intelligence, offers fledgling British spy Elena Standish, a gifted photographer who's fluent in German and Italian, a new assignment. Aiden Strother, one of the service's most important assets, is gathering information in Italy, but his handler there is unreachable at a crucial moment. Having learned that Strother's cover has been blown, Howard wants Elena to go to Trieste, posing as a photographer, to warn Strother to get out safely with as much data as possible. Elena accepts the responsibility, even though she feels Strother betrayed her trust six years earlier when he was posing as a Nazi sympathizer and cost her her position at the Foreign Office. Meanwhile, Elena's older sister, Margot, adds to the intrigue by traveling to Berlin for the wedding of a childhood friend to a Gestapo officer. Perry expertly blends character development with plot surprises. This prolific author shows no sign of losing steam. Agent: Donald Maass, Donald Maass Literary. (Sept.)"
