A Duty to the Dead: A Bess Crawford Mystery by Charles Todd
She is surprised that the family of the soldier receive this message and appear to dismiss it immediately. Bess is concerned at their nonchalance to what the soldier has deemed a desperately important missive. Her determination to see this message through and to understand it's importance leads her into a course of events that she could not have imagined.
I was captivated by the character of Bess. She is definitely the type of person I would choose as a friend and confident. Not only is she smart and independent, she has a sense of right that won't allow her to let something alone when she knows it isn't right.
This story had so many twist and turns that I was eager to be finished one page to get on to the next to see what was waiting for me. I am looking forward to reading more of Bess's adventures.
Author Charles Todd is actually a mother and son writing duo of Caroline and Charles Todd. They are also the authors of the successful Inspector Rutledge novels.
