A fantastic second book in series

A Question of Betrayal: An Elena Standish Novel

By: Anne Perry

Rating: 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series. It introduced Elena Standish and her family and friends. This book, the second in the series, starts to give depth and life to the characters. I suggest reading the first book first, so you can understand how the individuals have gotten to where they are at this point.

Elena is tasked with a job for MI6, the British secret intelligence group that she has recently joined. The task takes her to northern Italy to save the man who betrayed her and caused her years of emotional pain.

It takes everything in her to agree to the job but once in Italy, she begins to see Aiden in a different light. When he comes under suspicion, she stands beside him to save him, not only for the information he carries but also because of who he is.

There are all kinds of twists and turns in this story. They reach from Britain to northern Italy and back. Elena’s sister ends up in Berlin, in which the Nazis are growing ever more powerful.

There is so much going on and the story comes together beautifully. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
