Publisher's Summary

January 1954. Mists cover the hills around Selchester. Someone at the research facility known as the Atomic is leaking secrets to Soviet Russia, and when nuclear scientist Bruno Rothesay goes missing, the British Intelligence Services are convinced he's the mole. Hugo Hawksworth isn't so sure. Then a body turns up, and Hugo's instincts are proven correct. But if Rothesay wasn't selling secrets to the Soviets, who is?
As Hugo digs deeper into buried connections and unlikely coincidences, he knows there's more to this case than his London superiors believe. But following his instincts will pit him against the Establishment - and tangle him once again in the poisonous legacy of the late Lord Selchester.
As he closes in on the truth, Hugo finds himself confronted by an adversary who will stop at nothing, in a case that will prove the most personal of his career.
With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to John Le Carré, A Matter Of Loyalty is the third and final book in this delightfully classic and witty murder-mystery series.

RIP To The Author

For those who might not know, the author Elizabeth unexpected passed away. This book was one which was created by meshing the earlier written scenes with Elizabeth's extensive historical notes and conversations from her final days. It was then put together by her co-author and editor, Ansley.

As someone who has read all the novels in this series I can say that this book remains true to form & on par with the first 2. There isn't a tone change or anything which would hint at a different author or a shake up. The story is a bit more complex and difficult to follow this time around with a lot of historical drama. However, that same well written British cozy is tucked in there all the same.

I don't believe there will be more than the 3 novels in this series, so I urge you to start at book 1 and go in order. It will make much more sense that way, as this is a chronological story.

This has been a very fine series!

I have so enjoyed this short series. And I feel quite sad that the original author passed away while writing this book, but it was finished extremely well (or such I understand) by her son. I wish he might think about keeping the series going at some point.

This particular book involved the new American Earl of Selchester (Gus) and one of his daughters (Polly) as they are learning to be a part of the new life they are taking on, living with a title and a castle he has unexpectedly inherited. The characters from previous books remain living there (Hugo, his sister Georgia, Freyna and the others).

Story revolves around the death of a man thought to have been giving away post WWII British secrets to the soviets. However, it becomes very complicated and various people come under suspicion throughout the story. I think this book had the strongest ending of any in the series.

I so enjoy the characters, and the ambience of the area that has been created throughout the three books. And the narration has been excellent. I recommend reading all 3, from the beginning, as a very enjoyable experience. Great thanks to Anselm Audrey for completing his mother’s work. I’m sure the readers are all very grateful.

Loved this, and sad that there'll be no more

A nice continuation of the stories in the two preceding books, with the characters and their relationships developing. A mysterious disappearance, a body, suspects, an unpleasant Special Branch inspector, twists and turns... All beautifully narrated by Michael Page.

So sad to learn of the author's untimely death. She will be missed by loved ones, friends and readers. I would have loved to read the rest of the stories she had in mind for these characters, but Anselm Audley left enough pointers when he finished his mother's work to show what she probably had in mind.
