Matthew and Joseph Reavley's parents are killed in a car accident on the same day the Austrian Archduke of Serbia is assassinated. Matthew is an intelligence officer; his father was driving to London to show him a document he believed was part of a conspiracy that would disgrace England. Days later, Joseph's favorite student is found murdered in his Cambridge dormitory room. The brothers join forces to investigate the two murders. Michael Page's reading adroitly captures the quiet atmosphere of Cambridge and the British countryside in 1914 alongside the climate of fear instilled in the students by the unsolved murder and the threat of coming war. Page's cadence and tone lend an excitement and grace to the story that improves upon the original plot. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
