Tending to the soldiers in the trenches of France during the First World War, battlefield nurse Bess Crawford can't help but notice the photo of a young pilot's wife every time she tends to him. But then at the railway station, in a mob of troops leaving for the front, Bess glimpses a familiar face—the pilot's wife? Back in France, Bess sees a newspaper with a drawing of the woman's face on the front page. She'd been murdered—the very day Bess saw her. Bess is soon on the search for a devious and very dangerous killer—a search that will put her own life in jeopardy.

Professional reviews

"With emotional intensity and studied elegance, Rosalyn Landor guides listeners to 1917, when England's aristocracy is facing the end of innocence and British military forces are being dealt their bloodiest hand against the Germans. Landor's voice and manner are ideal choices to tell the story of Bess Crawford, a nurse tending the critically wounded in France. One of Crawford's patients, a burn victim, has kept his wife's photograph as a beloved talisman. So Crawford is surprised to see the woman from the photo with another man at a London train station. Crawford later learns that within hours of seeing the woman at the train station, she was murdered. Driven by curiosity and principle, Bess is compelled to discover who murdered the wife. S.E.S.
