Synopsis

Synopsis

The churning politics of Trieste in 1906 provide the perfect backdrop for murder in the first in a series set in British embassies and consulates in the early 1900s featuring Special Branch officer Seymour. When the British consul goes missing, who’s responsible: the secret police, revolutionaries, or a mysterious lover?


From the Trade Paperback edition.
