A Verity Kent Mystery #4
The Great War has ended. Former Secret Service agent Verity Kent has her husband, Sydney back by her side.
They both are suffering the effects of the war. They made some nasty enemies and now those enemies are ready to take them on again.
When her father calls asking them to check in on his sister in Wiltshire, they leave at once. Expecting to find the large country house in shambles at their feet. But once again her aunt is exaggerating. While her cousin lost his sight in the war, he is still sharp as a tack, and no matter how hard his mother tries to keep everything from him, he knows more than he is saying.
When a young maid disappears, they fear the worst. When another man is found dead on the estate, things start to heat up. Odd sightings in the fields next to the RAF runway. Suspicious characters up to no good or ghosts?
And why in the world are there holes dug all over the field? Their friend Max meets up with them as they have word of a secret letter in code from his father that may have something to do with their old adversary Lord Ardmore. Information he doesn’t want out. And just like that they become the hunted.
This is such a good series. Verity is a powerful character and has an attitude I love. Can’t wait to see what she gets in to next!
