    • Abstract:
      Summary: "It's not that Verity Kent doesn't sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she's discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having enough trouble connecting with her estranged husband, never mind the dead. Still, at a friend's behest, Verity attends a séance, where she encounters the man who still looms between her and Sidney--and a medium who channels a woman Verity once worked with in the Secret Service. Refusing to believe her former fellow spy is dead, Verity is determined to uncover the source of the spiritualist's top secret revelation. Then the medium is murdered--and Verity's investigation is suddenly thwarted. Even Secret Service agents she once trusted turn their backs on her. Undaunted, Verity heads to war-torn Belgium, with Sidney by her side. But as they draw ever closer to the danger, Verity wonders if she's about to learn the true meaning of till death do us part"-- Provided by publisher.

PW Reviews 2018 August #2

Set in July 1919, Huber's splendid sequel to 2017's This Side of Murder finds Verity Kent, who has been reunited with her husband, Sidney, erroneously reported killed in action, eager for distraction. To this end, she accompanies a friend to a high-society séance in London. Madame Zozza seems like one of the many frauds preying on a nation's grief until she addresses Verity directly. Claiming to be Emilie, a Belgian operative with whom Verity worked as a Secret Service agent during WWI, Madame Zozza begs her to "unearth my secrets." Whether or not Emilie is dead, Verity is sure the medium's knowledge of their missions together has a human source with access to classified information. When Madame Zozza later dies in a suspicious fire, Verity feels compelled to seek answers—and news of Emilie's fate—in Belgium. Sidney joins her on the increasingly dangerous hunt for clues, but the couple's encounter with two of the men attracted to Verity during her "widowhood" sparks a marital crisis. Huber combines intricate puzzles with affecting human drama. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary. (Oct.)
