Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "World War I Battlefield nurse Bess Crawford's career is in jeopardy when a murder is committed on her watch, in this absorbing and atmospheric historical mystery from New York Times bestselling author Charles Todd. Home on leave, Bess Crawford is asked to accompany a wounded soldier confined to a wheelchair to Buckingham Palace, where he's to be decorated by the King. The next morning when Bess goes to collect Wilkins, he has vanished. Both the Army and the nursing service hold Bess negligent for losing the war hero, and there will be an inquiry. Then comes disturbing word from the Shropshire police, complicating the already difficult situation: Wilkins has been spotted, and he's killed a man. If Bess is to save her own reputation, she must find Wilkins and uncover the truth. But the elusive soldier has disappeared again and even the Shropshire police have lost him. Suddenly, the moral implications of what has happened--that a patient in her charge has committed murder--become more important to Bess than her own future. She's going to solve this mysterious puzzle, but righting an injustice and saving her honor may just cost Bess her life" --

    Bess Crawford, a British battlefield nurse in WWI, keeps getting involved in murder mysteries. Here, in the sixth novel in the series, Bess is honored to be asked to accompany a wounded soldier to Buckingham Palace, where the soldier is supposed to receive an award. But the soldier vanishes, and Bess is accused of dereliction of duty, an accusation that Bess takes very seriously. When the missing man turns up, apparently having murdered someone, it isn't just her professional reputation Bess must save; it's her own life. The Crawford novels aren't quite as captivating as those in the mother-and-son writing team's better-known Inspector Ian Rutledge series, but perhaps it's not fair to compare them. The Crawford novels are lighter and less freighted with psychological and metaphysical overtones than the Rutledge books, and Bess clearly isn't intended to be as complex a protagonist as Rutledge is. Fans of the previous books in the Crawford series will enjoy this one. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
