Summary, etc.:
"Bridey Kelly has come to Greenway House--the beloved holiday home of Agatha Christie--in disgrace. A terrible mistake at St. Prisca's Hospital in London has led to her dismissal as a nurse trainee, and her only chance for redemption is a position in the countryside caring for children evacuated to safety from the Blitz. Greenway is a beautiful home full of riddles: wondrous curios not to be touched, restrictions on rooms not to be entered, and a generous library, filled with books about murder. The biggest mystery might be the other nurse, Gigi, who is like no one Bridey has ever met. Chasing ten young children through the winding paths of the estate grounds might have soothed Bridey's anxieties and grief--if Greenway were not situated so near the English Channel and the rising aggressions of the war. When a body washes ashore near the estate, Bridey is horrified to realize this is not a victim of war, but of a brutal killing. As the local villagers look among themselves, Bridey and Gigi discover they each harbor dangerous secrets about what has led them to Greenway. With a mystery writer's home as their unsettling backdrop, the young women must unravel the truth before their safe haven becomes a place of death ... "-- Provided by publisher.

    In Blitz-torn London, Bridey Kelly's standing as a nurse trainee is in jeopardy after she makes a disastrous mistake. She attempts to restore her supervisor's favor by agreeing to care for a group of children fleeing the city's constant bombings. Greenway, the evacuees' bucolic Devon rental, is owned by renowned mystery author Agatha Christie, a fitting detail considering the foreboding that Bridey has determinedly ignored since she boarded the train. Her secretive fellow nurse, Gigi, seems oddly familiar with a mysterious trio who have followed them from the London station to Greenway. When one of the three is killed, Bridey recognizes signs of strangling and only then learns of several other recent deaths that the village's new doctor has written off to natural causes. Ever the sharp-eyed survivor, Bridey suspects that the deaths are tied to Gigi's past and the rumors of a possible Nazi fifth column in the village. Rader-Day, known for masterfully weaving historical elements into her female-focused literary thrillers, imbues this wartime whodunit with palpable emotion as Bridey reconciles her family's bombing deaths through a plan to save another life.
