Edwin Strafford is an Englishman to be admired in the infancy of the twentieth century. At a young age, he is a star member of the Edwardian Cabinet, and he is betrothed to a beautiful, if headstrong, suffragette. Suddenly, though, both his political career and his romance come to an end in a scandal whose details are shrouded from him. Seventy years will pass before a young historian, Martin Radford, begins to unravel what lay behind Strafford's fall from grace, a story that includes political intrigue, betrayal, and murder and, before it's over, threatens to engulf Radford himself. The cast is large, yet Paul Shelley's interpretations and inflections make them each distinctive. The mystery never flags and often surprises, exactly the same as Shelley's narration. M.O.
