An Unmarked Grave
Instantly gripping! Initially set in a World War I battlefield hospital, the reader is immediately plunged into the Spanish Influenza and war wounds as seen through a nurse's (Sister Bess Crawford) eyes, then quickly led into murder.
As I was unfamiliar with this series, I was a bit confused at first that Colonel Sahib and Colonel Crawford were one and the same. I also wished for more descriptions of physical appearances of main characters. No doubt all that was well established in earlier books.
An Unmarked Grave has a fast moving plot. The final resolution is unexpected but satisfying. The book is well researched and really lets you feel the frustrations with communication and transportation that were a part of World War I. I intend to read the first four in the series...and future Bess Crawford mysteries, too.
