- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 August #1
Bess Crawford's eighth adventure again highlights the battlefield nurse's dangerous curiosity and implacable fortitude under the extreme conditions of WWI. Wounded in a trench while assessing a patient, Bess is shipped off to Paris to convalesce, giving her time to investigate an injured French officer who might not be all he seems. Despite her own injury, Bess tracks her quarry while also taking in Paris nightlife with her father's military aide. The trail of clues leads Bess into a morass of family relationships and a horrendous murder committed by a child 10 years earlier. As always, Todd's characters come to life, no matter how small their role in the story, and the surprising denouement arrives all too soon. Todd vividly describes wartime horrors and the heroic medical personnel who risk their lives to save the wounded. Fans of Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series will enjoy quick-witted Bess Crawford, and readers who liked Mackenzie Ford's Gifts of War (2009) will appreciate the balance of emotion and historical detail in this quick read.
