Publisher's Summary

Deep in the trenches of Flanders Fields, men are dying in the thousands every day. So one more death shouldn't be a surprise.
But then a body turns up with bizarre injuries, and Sherlock Holmes' former sidekick, Dr. John Watson - unable to fight for his country due to injury but able to serve it through his medical expertise - finds his suspicions raised. The face has a bluish tinge, the jaw is clamped shut in a terrible rictus, and the eyes are almost popping out of his head, as if the man had seen unimaginable horror. Something is terribly wrong.
But this is just the beginning. Soon more bodies appear, and Watson must discover who the killer in the trenches is. Who can he trust? Who is the enemy? And can he find the perpetrator before he kills again?
Surrounded by unimaginable carnage, amid a conflict that's ripping the world apart, Watson must for once step out of the shadows and into the limelight if he's to solve the mystery behind the inexplicable deaths.

Watson without Holmes

So enjoyed this book. Kept my attention throughout and full of historical facts plus a plot that twists and turns. A few sub plots going on to. It works. As a Sherlock Holmes fan I was a bit dubious but I need not have.

Excellent narration and I've bought the next one of the series.
