"On her first mission for MI6, the daring young photographer at the heart of bestselling author Anne Perry's thrilling 1930s mystery series travels to Mussolini's Italy to rescue the lover who betrayed her.

And young Elena Standish, to her surprise, is the only one who can recognize MI6's man--because he's her former lover. Aiden Strother betrayed her six years before, throwing shame on her entire family.

Margot and Elena's grandfather, the former head of MI6, is none too happy about the girls' 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 granddaughters', what's at stake in Europe becomes increasingly frightening--and personal"--

Take five possible themes: a mismatched marriage, a failed affair, a national takeover, corrupted leadership and enigmatic elders. Add a few descriptions of haute couture, a friendly dog, multiple repetitive sentences and ample angst and you have this book. Blech.

I am beginning to like Elena Standish and her family. Ms. Perry has always been great at creating an ensemble cast. Since I read extensively about WWII and the Holocaust, the time frame could not be a better one for me. Lots of secrets, hidden messages and plot twists. Recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby
