Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Remarkable.” New York Times Book Review
“Although the use of coincidence in a murder mystery is generally frowned upon, Todd takes one giant coincidence and builds a plot around it to great effect. This second book in the Bess Crawford series places this mother-son writing duo at the top of their plotting game, with intricate twists and plenty of viable suspects. The meticulously realized period detailing is an intrinsic part of a story that is much more than a whodunit.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“A book rich in atmosphere and dense with plot.” St. Louis Post-Dipatch
“A superb whodunit…and a moving evocation of a world at war.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Finely plotted and full of meticulous period detail and deft characterizations.” Strand
