The final book in the WWI series. Set in 1918 shortly before the armistice, this draws all the threads together and finishes with the unmasking of the 'peacemaker'.

German prisoners-of-war are passing through, anxious about the realities of defeat. A nurse in a front-line clearing station is found brutally murdered and various suspects are investigated. Some of thr 'liberated' do not act honourably. I thought the book was rather patchy. The ending was weak, but the crime section good.

The major theme of the novel is the inevitability of post war social change and its impact on the Reavly family.
