The churning politics of Trieste, 1906, provide the perfect backdrop for murder.
From the Publisher:

The churning politics of Trieste in 1906 provide the perfect backdrop for murder in the first in a series set in British embassies and consulates in the early 1900s featuring Special Branch officer Seymour. When the British consul goes missing, who’s responsible: the secret police, revolutionaries, or a mysterious lover?

Annotation:
The author of the popular Mamur Zapt series shifts locale from colonial Egypt to the turbulence of pre-WWI Europe in this first historical mystery of a projected series. Multi-lingual British spy Sandor Seymour is assigned to Trieste to find out what happened to the now-vanished British consul. When the man's body turns up, Seymour must negotiate with Futurist artists, anarchists, and various local constabularies for the information he needs to figure out whodunit.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"[T]he raffish port city of Trieste is every bit as exciting as Cairo [(site of the author's other series)] and promises to be even more dangerous." - Marilyn Stasio 12/26/2004

Kirkus Reviews
"The author of the much-loved Mamur Zapt series...scores again with this first in a series: a dry cocktail of pre-WWI European territorial impasses, naifs, and an old-fashioned puzzle." 10/01/2004

Publishers Weekly
"...Pearce...makes the case for a larger fan base with this first in a new series....Pearce again demonstrates his skill at making the past come alive and at seamlessly weaving actual political intrigues into his plot." 10/04/2004
