I desperately want to learn more of how they move on from this...can they move on from this? I mean, logically, I know that they have to because there are more stories to be told from this universe, but I wonder how can they move forward, and where will they go from here? I want to know what Colin, with his sensitivity to changes in atmosphere, feels about the tensions between his parents? Where does Laura fit into this scheme of things? So many questions....I can only hope that Ms. Grant has started writing the next installment? Well, a girl can dream!
While I know that this series fits into the older universe Ms. Grant has created re Melanie and Charles Frazer (sp?), I like to read this series as a separate entity. I find the characters are more fully fleshed out this time around and the issues they wrestle with are more grounded. It probably a question of interpretation but Suzanne appeals to me more than Melanie did, and I find myself both sympathetic to the situation she finds herself in, and more aware of how ugly things will have to get (as she searches for herself -- in the tangled web of marriage, spying, lies and loyalties) before they can become better.
I can't wait to read more.
It's November, 1817, and Malcolm is no longer working as an Intelligence Agent in Europe. He, Suzanne, and their two children are now living in London and Malcolm is a member of Parliament and Suzanne is a charming politician's wife. But adventure always manages to find them. It all starts here with the investigation of a possible lost version of Shakespeare's HAMLET, an investigation which the couple undertake together. Is it authentic and, possibly more importantly, has it been used as a code book for French spies?
As they investigate, secrets come out. Some are secrets of who has slept with whom, who has fathered whom, and, of course, who is a spy and of what category (British, French royalist, French revolutionary or Irish revolutionary)? All I can say is thank goodness for the Dramatis Personae at the beginning of the book to help keep all the characters straight.
Suzanne and Malcolm's marriage is dealt a huge blow in this one. Will they recover? Can they learn to trust each other again? It looks hopeful, but stay tuned.
The book centers around Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch, a married couple with all the "issues" listed above. They had met and married during the Peninsula War and had evolved into a happy couple with first one, then two children. But both were spies; Malcolm for the British and Suzanne for the French. Suzanne's allegiances were hidden from Malcolm but you, the reader, having read the previous three books - and a couple of Kindle singles - knew the truth would come out at some point in time.
But, it seems almost everybody in the Rannoch's circle was a French spy. I'm not exaggerating; the number of secrets exposed in this book is lengthy and often...interesting. Teresa Grant is a good writer, though, and she keeps her plot and her characters in a constant juggle, that lands right at the end. I don't know whether this is the last of the series's books but if it is, it's a good last book. Oh, and don't be put off by the cover pictures on Grant's books. They look a bit trashy and "romantic-y" but they're not. They are solid reading for the historical novel reader.
