"A wonderful new mystery series that will let us see the horrors of World War I through the eyes of Bess Crawford, battlefield nurse."
--Margaret Maron

"Readers who can't get enough of Jacqueline Winspear's novels, or Hester Latterly, who saw action in the Crimean War in a series of novels by Anne Perry, are bound to be caught up in the adventures of Bess Crawford."
--New York Times Book Review

The critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author of the Ian Rutledge mystery series, Charles Todd once again spotlights World War I nurse Bess Crawford in An Unmarked Grave. Gripping, powerful, and evocative, this superb mystery masterwork unfolds during the deadly Spanish Influenza pandemic of 1918, as Bess discovers the body of a murdered British officer among the many dead and sets out to unmask a craven killer.

Bess has escaped serious war injury so far, but the Spanish Influenza (which infected my own mother's family in Canada at war's end, in it's brutal world-wide spread) nearly kills her. And it does so just as she's learned of the murder of a man who was in her father's old regiment. When she finally returns to duty, she learns another man may have been murdered, and time isn't on her side as she tries to find the culprit. Another good read in this great series. I always learn something new both about this dreadful war, and about the recurring characters.

This is why I love mystery books! It was a very interesting and captivating read. I was honoured to have bought a copy with the author's signature.

Battlefield nurse Bess Crawford just has to solve the mystery behind the murder of an officer and brings the problem very close to home. Interesting account of some of the problems of World War 1 and its aftermath.

Gotta love it when the murderer comes out of left field. To be fair, I lost track of all the names and bodies about ¾ of the way through, so he could have been mentioned and I missed it. The only reason I kept going is it seemed a shame to have wasted all that time and not even find out whodunit.
