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.

With appreciation and regret

This is a personal note to Mr. Audley.
I want to thank you for bringing “A Matter of Loyalty” to life.
I respect your decision to leave your mother’s books as she wrote them, and I appreciate your informing devotees of these lovely stories that we can expect no more, and my wish that the saga might go on is not to be granted.
Thank you for giving us one more novel to enjoy.

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.

The last story

This has been a lovely series, and I was so pleased that this third book was finished by the authors son. The only downside is that the rest of the series won't be written, unless he changes his mind. Anselm Audley has done a great job of finishing this book, which she had hardly begun before her death.
There are areas of the story which had a slightly different feel to the previous two books, but very little, and I soon forgot it wasn't all written by Elizabeth Edmondson.
More than a mystery, you feel you know the characters and want to know more what happens. Thank you Anselm .

Sad to see the end

Great story continuing on from the previous ones in the series, the characters and story are very real and relatable. Sad that the series won’t be continued since Elizabeth Edmondson has passed but I have enjoyed all of her that I have purchased.
