I chose this book because the cover looked interesting and because it was a mystery crime novel. It turned out to be a great choice, well written and a good mystery. Best of all it was based in Wiltshire near where I live and the storytelling evoked nostalgia for the villages as they had been before and after the Great War.
A sad tale that made you care about all the characters and left you wanting to know what happens to Laurence, Patrick, Frances and of course David. No doubt we will find out more about Laurence if Elizabeth Speller writes a third novel. Having not read the first book I cannot wait to read The Return of Captain John Emmett.
If you love crime mysteries, the Edwardian era and Wiltshire then I heartily recommend you read this book.
