Treacherous Is the Night (Verity Kent, #2)

In 1919 England, in the shadow of The Great War, many look to the spirit world for answers. But it will take an all too earthbound intrigue to draw in the discerning heroine of Anna Lee Huber’s latest mystery . . . It’s not that Verity Kent doesn’t sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she’s discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having en...

    I've given this a B+ at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars.Treacherous is the Night is the second book in Anna Lee Huber’s latest series of post-WW1 historical mysteries featuring former secret service agent Verity Kent.  The events of this story unfold just a few weeks after those of the previous book, This Side of Murder, and if you’ve not read that, look away now, because there is a massive spoiler for the twist in that story in the next paragraph ...

The second in a series featuring former Secret Service Agent Verity Kent in the time immediately following World War I. this books stands alone.

    Full disclosure, I’ve been a huge fan of Anna Lee Huber for years. I absolutely love all of her books and I can’t get enough of the heroines, mysteries, and of course the covers! The Verity Kent series is no different.I read the first book in the Verity Kent series earlier this year and I loved it! It was an interesting start to a different type of heroine for Huber. I was eager to see what else was in store for Verity in this latest book in ...

    Though it is 1919 and despite the horrendous war and the after effects of it, the position of women seemed roughly unchanged. They took up the challenge,motor to every known occupation available, filled in all the gaps admirably but when the war was over they were expected to go back to their routine lives of home and family.To those like Verity who worked behind the scenes and without anyone's knowledge in extremely desperate circumstances all f...

    5+ stars!! Ms. Huber has penned another fabulous mystery in this series. She has demonstrated great skill as she writes in a new setting that is roughly 90 years later than her popular Lady Darby series. Many authors are not able to adapt from one setting to another as successfully as she. With lyrical prose that appeals to the senses, Ms. Huber adeptly draws her readers into the setting of post-war Europe that is filled with danger and intrigue....

    Series: Verity Kent #2Publication Date: 9/25/18This is a captivating, suspenseful and beautifully written tale set in the aftermath of WWI. It moves quickly and is filled with twists and turns. There is so much rich period detail that is so well done that you feel as if you are there. This author does a lot of research and I always learn something new when I read her work. The characters are so well written that you would like to introduce yourse...

    After my intro to Verity and her Post WWI world in This Side of Murder, I was eager to press forward with the next installment in this complex and intriguing though exceptionally engaging historical murder mystery series.Treacherous is the Night is book two and follows closely on the heels of book one. It builds from the previous events and doesn't make a good one to grab out of order. In fact, this book's very blurb provides a spoiler for book o...

    Dollycas’s ThoughtsIn this follow up to This Side of Murder, Ex-Secret Service Agent Verity Kent is doing her best to reconnect with the husband she believed was killed in the war. His surprising return happened in the last book just as she started to have feelings for another man. It is difficult to curb those new feelings when the man seems to pop up everywhere as he did to a séance her friend had dragged her too.In This Side of Murder a Qui...

    Strong second book in the Verity Kent series.In the last book, Verity discovered that her husband Sidney, whom she’d been told over a year earlier was dead, was still very much alive. After the ripples from that discovery and its associated investigation start dying down, Verity and Sidney are left to see if their marriage is salvagable. After only a few days as newlyweds, they were separated for nearly five years, with only sporadic visits and...

    I really enjoyed the second book in Huber's Verity Kent series in which Verity Kent finds herself embroiled in an intrigue related to her time as a Secret Service agent during the war. Verity learns that a former contact may be in danger and that someone has been sharing secrets that should not have been made public, spurring Verity to make a trip to Belgium to discover more. Accompanying Verity is her husband, Sidney, who has recently returned t...

    Calculated risks!Verity and Sidney Kent may be united but four years of thinking your husband dead means you led a different life. No longer the woman who had a husband to consider, rather a woman grieving and determined to live life, take chances and trying to bury the sorrow. So it's no wonder Verity and Sidney are experiencing alienation, confusion with seemingly no way of going forward.Add to this Verity being dragged to a seance where the me...

    This is the second book in the Verity Kent mystery series which follows six weeks after the conclusion of, "This Side of Murder". In the first book, the Great War has recently ended. Verity's stint in the British Secret Service has come to an end. Yet, those skills honed in service are vital to solving the riddles and mysteries found in book two. Without giving too much away, I must say that author Anna Lee Huber brings her characters to life so ...

    I am a big fan of Ms. Huber's Lady Darby series, but had not read the first book in the Verity Kent series. I didn't feel lost at all reading this one. Though the immediate post-WWI time period is not one I tend to read, Ms. Huber has the ability to make anything interesting! In this story Verity agrees, grudgingly, to attend a seance with a friend. The medium "channels" a woman Verity worked with in the Secret Service during the war, but Verity ...

    Huber sets this series not during WWI, where her heroine undertook dangerous missions for British intelligence in Belgium, but in the aftermath--as disgruntled refugees blame the British for their destroyed villages and prison time, badly behaved tourists flock to grim battlefields, demobilized soldiers and agents attempt to adjust to civilian life and the heroine and her veteran husband find that a desire to return to normalcy clashes badly with...

    Note: This is my very first copy of a book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.I did not read the first book in the series nor was I familiar with the author. But I will definitely read it now. And read more of Anna Lee Huber’s works. I saw reviews who recommend you read the first one to understand this book. I disagree as I was able to follow the story and put the main characters in perspective very early on.To be honest, I could not...

    Treacherous In The Night is the second book in the Verity Kent Mystery series.I find this historical mystery to be a very enjoyable, well researched and written series. Ms. Huber gives the reader an interesting look at post-WWI Europe.The story begins a few months after the conclusion of This Side Of Murder. Verity and Sidney are still walking on egg-shells around each other. Verity hasn’t completely forgiven Sidney for letting her believe he w...

    Treacherous is the Night is an amazing piece of historical fiction.  Not only does it provide insight into the changing role of women after WWI, it doesn’t shy from discussing the effects of time in the trenches on soldiers or from portraying the callous “patriotism” of those not directly involved in the war.  The effects of war play a central roles in this espionage/mystery. On the one hand, there is the strain on Verity and Sidney’s m...

    It is 1919, and the shadows of World War I still loom in this superb second installment in the Verity Kent Mystery Series. TREACHEROUS IS THE NIGHT follows Verity and her “resurrected” husband Sydney as they face ghosts from the war in an attempt to save their marriage and decipher the message that one of Verity’s friends from her time in the Secret Service is trying to send. Readers follow along on the pair’s complex quest to find Emile,...

When one of her friends invites her to a seance, Verity reluctantly attends, only to leave furious and puzzled when the medium conjures the ‘spirit’ of a fellow spy that Verity worked w...

    This is the second book of the Verity Kent Mystery Saga. Being a post WWI book deals with the aftermath of The Great War and gives tribute to the silent fighters, those who worked in intelligence services for the allies. Most novels that I have come across about WWI emphasized much on the carnage of the trenches and the psychological effects. This book addresses those topics in a more subtle way without resting importance to the horrors lived by ...

    While Treacherous is the Night is essentially a mystery it also delves into the effect the war has had on the protagonists. The characters were interesting and I look forward to seeing their story continue in future books.

    My thoughts while reading the book of this National Bestselling Author:Verity and her husband have a slightly awkward conversation. Immediately afterwards the narration spends to pages on explaining how her relationship has changed because of what they saw in the war and what happened after the war. That their relationship will never be the same as it was before. That they both still have to work through all those issues but that both have proble...

    I really liked this book! I loved all the intricacies of secrets and codes post-war. I liked how Verity was a great heroine in her own right, while her husband, Sidney, seemed to me more like her sidekick. I even liked how their marital issues were a conflict in this book. I will be happy to read more about Verity!

    Anna Lee Huber's latest Verity Kent mystery “Treacherous Is the Night” is a dark and wondrous tale. It has a little bit of everything – mysterious clues, secret rooms, strangers you can't trust, lovers you can't love. Not to mention breadcrumbs. Verity is every bit as tenacious and loyal as she was in her first book “This Side of Murder,” maybe more so. The deeper I read into the book, the harder it was to put down. So I didn't. Verity ...
