Charles Todd has done it again! Consistent excellent writing, character development, historical details and even good mysteries (though this one wasn't too hard to figure out), this series is one of my favorites! I am always thrilled when a new Todd book comes out (either this series or the other, featuring Ian Rutledge, the post WWI detective).
Bess Crawford is a nurse during WWI, and in this episode, the war is ending, the Armistice has been declared, but there is still some fighting happening. She meets an officer casually at first, later he is brought back into her aid station wounded, and that touches off what will be a new adventure for Bess, as she and family friend Simon Brandon set out to try to untangle the odd circumstances surrounding the shootings.
I feel a little worried that the author(s) have set this at the end of the war. I am hoping that doesn't mean they are planning to bring this exceptional series to an end, but merely intending to have the series shift to post war Britain. This book was a bit unusual in that Simon Brandon played a larger role than he usually does, and Bess' father was more involved than usual, as well. In my opinion, this added to the story, as they are both interesting characters.
Rosalyn Landor has narrated these books so well, that I would hardly want anyone else to ever take her place. I think this could be a successful stand alone book, but for full enjoyment and understanding of the background, it would be well to listen to them in order. Highly recommend!
