No Graves As Yet (Book #117)
No Graves As Yet (Anne Perry, 2003) is the first of a mystery series following a family of British siblings (whose parents are the first murder victims of the book) through WWI. This story is set between the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and the actual outbreak of hostilities, and there's a sense of leisurely menace throughout. Frankly, until the very end the pacing is a little slow. Though I enjoyed the book throughout, it didn't hit the point where I couldn't put it down until the last 20-30 pages. I'll look for the rest of the series over the next few months.
