Summary, etc.: A battlefield nurse during World War I, Bess Crawford, returning to London for a well-earned Christmas leave, finds her holiday fraught with mystery and murder when she agrees to help a bruised and battered woman return to her small village in Sussex

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 August #1
    "WWI nurse Bess Crawford seems to encounter misfortune every time she leaves the battlefield. In the first two novels in this new series from the mother-and-son writing team behind the Ian Rutledge mysteries, Bess got mixed up in criminal goings-on when she returned home to England, and her bad-luck streak continues here. Coming home for a Christmas break, Bess encounters a seemingly homeless woman who, it turns out, has left her husband after a violent episode. Intending to intervene on the woman's behalf, Bess walks right into a case of murder. And this time she has a very personal reason for solving the mystery: she's the prime suspect. The Crawford mysteries are gentler and less psychological than the Rutledge novels, but they are no less satisfying. Bess is a very strong series lead, the historical setting is as well developed here as it is in the Rutledge books, and the mysteries are just as elegantly constructed. Readers who have yet to sample the Crawford series should be strongly encouraged to do so." Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
