A Question of Betrayal

New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry brings us the second exciting instalment in her new thriller series, set in a time of increasing fear and violence across Europe in the 1930s and featuring British photographer and secret agent Elena Standish.

Elena’s mission is to bring back the agent along with top secret information that could save the lives of thousands of people.

Reviews

Masterful! It's exceedingly rare for an author to have the talent to blend classic elements of a thriller with compelling family dynamics and geopolitical intrigue, but Anne Perry pulls it off like the consummate pro that she is. And, on top of all that, Death in Focus is written in her unique literary voice. And I guarantee you'll love Elena Standish! Brava!
Jeffery Deaver
Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries are marvels of plot construction... truly remarkable
New York Times
There is a freshness about [Perry's] writing which makes it truly exceptional and I was gripped until the final page. Death on Blackheath was one of the best books I've read this year and I cannot recommend it highly enough
Euro crime
Elegantly constructed and nail-bitingly tense
Good Book Guide
The investigation concludes in a hold-your-breath trial... A brilliant Victorian police procedural in which well-realized characters and settings are fascinating in themselves
