We Shall Not Sleep

By

This is the fifth and final volume in Anne Perry’s series of World War I mysteries about the Reavley siblings: British army chaplain Joseph, Secret Intelligence Service officer Matthew, and ambulance driver Judith. They have been trying to discover the identity of the “Peacemaker,” the mastermind behind a secret treaty between Britain and Germany which would have betrayed Britain’s allies. The Reavleys’ parents were murdered in 1914, on their way to deliver a copy of the treaty to Matthew and expose the plot. Now, in late October 1918, as the war draws to a close, Schenckendorff, the Peacemaker’s German counterpart, offers to betray the Peacemaker if the Reavleys will take him to London. But, before they can leave, a nurse is murdered and Schenckendorff is arrested for the crime. The Reavleys have only a short time to clear his name and get to London before the Peacemaker can dictate the terms of the armistice.

We Shall Not Sleep brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. I have come to care about the Reavleys, and I will miss them. But it is very important to start with the first book, No Graves as Yet, and read the books in order.
