The Dark Palace is the third novel in the Silas Quinn series by author RN Morris. Silas Quinn of the Met's Special Crimes Unit is asked by the Admiralty to keep an eye out for suspicious German characters who may be spies for their home country. The investigation links to a premiere of a new motion picture that Silas Quinn is reluctant to attend and the event is interrupted by a horrific incident. The investigation takes a disturbing twist when members of the London establishment start receiving packages with the strangest contents.
The book is set in April 1914 when anti-German sentiment was at its height in the UK and this something captured by the author. Read the full review here
