In the Spring of 1926, the corpses of three men are found in shallow graves off the beaten path in Epping Forest outside of London—each shot through the heart and bearing no identification. DCI Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, the lead detective, is immediately given two urgent orders by his supervisor at the Yard: solve the murders quickly and keep his wife, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, away from the case. Daisy is off visiting their olders daughter at boarding school, so surely she won't become involved - hah! I have read several of the Daisy Dalrymple books and really like the characters, but the books are so serious, not much humor in them, based on history from pre-WWI to just after WWI in this book. But if she writes another one, I will read that one too.
