The Herzberg Trilogy

Drawing on his experience of calculated duplicity in state diplomacy, Edward Glover’s first novel The Music Book tells a story of intrigue, betrayal, revenge, death and redemption, revealing a world of dark secrets beneath the veneer of 18th-century social glamour.

The hotly-anticipated sequel and second volume in the compelling Herzberg trilogy Fortune’s Sonata follows a beautiful English-born countess and a murderous spymaster as they come face to face with a scheming Prussian king, a deadly Russian empress, and even Beethoven and Mozart.

The third and final book in the trilogy A Motif of Seasons, which follows the Whitfield and von Deppe families at the heart of the series in the run up to the outbreak of World War I, was published in November 2016.
