Reavley #1: No Graves As Yet
1914: Cambridge professor Joseph Reavley learns from his brother Matthew, an officer in the Intelligence Service, that his parents have died in an automobile crash en route to London. They were to turn over to Matthew a document so damning that it would disgrace England and destroy the civilized world. Now it has vanished. How had it fallen into the hands of their father, a quiet countryman? Then Joseph's most gifted student is murdered. England's peace is cracking, as the distance between the assassination of an Austrian archduke and the murder of a brilliant university student grows shorter by the day.
