1914: No Graves as Yet

In the last idyllic summer of 1914, the battle lines are already drawn. But for Joseph Reavley the summer is shattered by his parents' deaths in a car accident. His brother Matthew, who works for the secret service reveals that their father, a retired MP, had discovered something sinister, but the evidence has gone missing. And it seems that their deaths may not have been accidental after all...


1915: Shoulder the Sky

It is April 1915 and the world is in the bloody throes of war. Most civilians have little idea of horrors at the Front, and a young war correspondent wants to publish the truth. But then he is found dead in no-man's land - and it seems that the Germans are not responsible. For Chaplain Joseph Reavley the event has uncomfortable echoes of his own parents' tragedy, with murder and censorship the dark weapons being secretly employed behind the lines...


1916: Angels in the Gloom

It's March 1916, and Joseph Reavley is on sick leave, cared for by his sister Hannah. Shanley Corcoran, an old friend, comes to visit. Corcoran confides in Joseph that he's come very close to completing an invention that will paralyse the deadly German U-boats. Soon afterwards, however, the leading scientist on that project is found murdered, and it's clear that someone has been betraying secrets to the enemy...


1917: At Some Disputed Barricade

In July 1917, as the sun sets over no-man's-land, rumours of mutiny grow stronger. After the death of an officer, twelve soldiers are arrested, and it falls to Joseph Reavley to uncover the truth about their involvement. At the same time, his brother Matthew, of the S.I.S, learns of a plot to destroy the only men who can bring about lasting peace...


1918: We Shall not Sleep

It's 1918, and Joseph Reavley's regiment has suffered huge losses but all hope that peace is near. Then a young nurse is savagely murdered, and Joseph vows to find her killer. Matthew, is already at the Front to meet a prisoner who claims to be able to identify the shadowy figure betraying his country. If Matthew is able to put a stop to The Peacemaker's schemes, there will be a chance for lasting peace; if he fails, then freedom and liberty could be all but a distant memory for future generations...
