"In the start of an all-new mystery series set in pre-World War II Europe, an intrepid young photographer carries her imperiled lover's final, urgent message into the heart of Berlin as Hitler ascends to power. On vacation from London on the beautiful Italian coast, twenty-eight-year-old Elena Standish and her older sister Margot have finally been able to forget some of the lasting trauma of the Great War. Touring with her camera in hand, Elena has found new inspiration in the striking Italian landscape, and she's met an equally striking man named Ian. Not ready to part from one another, she and Ian share a train trip home to England. But a shocking murder disrupts their agenda, forcing Elena to personally deliver a message to Berlin that could change the fate of Europe. Back home, Elena's diplomat father and secretive grandfather--the former head of MI6, unbeknownst to his family--are involved in their own international machinations. Working behind the scenes as Elena tries to complete her mission on the ground, they interfere with a crucial political rally for one of Germany's most outspoken fascists. With Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich on the rise, and Elena caught in the middle of an international incident, anyone she encounters might be part of a deadly plot. In the first novel of a riveting new series by bestselling author Anne Perry, family secrets merge with suspense on the world stage, and Elena learns that, in these complicated times, no one can be trusted, and she must learn to rely only on herself"--… (mehr)

While in Amalfi photographing an economics conference, Elena is nearby when a body falls from a linen closet. She is sure her companion, Ian, recognized the body, but he says he does not. When they depart together for France, Ian is killed on the train and Elena finds herself in the middle of an espionage plot.
This book started off much like a mystery novel but is much more aligned with a spy thriller. ( )

Anne Perry has started a new series. This one features a plucky twenty-something photographer by the name of Elena Standish. It is set in Europe and the UK and this book takes place in 1933. One war is barely over, and Europe is under the threat of another one starting again. It's a dangerous time, especially in Germany in 1933. Hitler's popularity is high in Germany because he has promised jobs and better times for Germans. A lot of his agenda has not been revealed as of yet. Elena is visiting Amalfi with her sister. She has been hired to take photographs at an economist conference. She meets a young man and starts out on an adventure with him on her way back home to England. When Ian gets killed on a train to Paris, before he dies, he asks Elena to finish his mission which takes her to Berlin. There is danger around every corner in Berlin, and Elena does not who to trust. After a dangerous cat and mouse game in Berlin she finally finds herself on her way home, but danger follows her everywhere. This is a very difierent series for Anne Perry. I have read everything she's written and this new series and this protagonist surprised me a bit. But the book has a remarkably tense plot and it carries on right until the last page. I look forward to reading more about Elena. I'm never disappointed with Anne Perry. ( )

Hitler is on the rise in Germany, the political leadership in London refuses see the danger and some are even impressed with Hitler's reorganization of Germany. MI6 is dominated by those are equally resistant to seeing the danger. The Standish family has served England since before the Great War. Father, former head of MI6, and son, current ambassador, stand firmly on opposite sides of the debate. Elena, driven out of the Foreign Service, finds herself caught up the middle of spies and traitors and the Gestapo. ( )

M16 spies in Berlin pre-WWII, good setting, fast pacing, lots of suspense, but rather a contrived ending, Writing is serviceable...I would have expected more from Anne Perry? ( )
