Reread Note # 6 - A Duty to the Dead

A Duty to the Dead: A Bess Crawford Mystery - Charles Todd, Rosalyn Landor

Original review here.



I can't tell you how much I love this series. And as I just learned there's a new book (out last year I think) I haven't read yet, I decided to reread the whole thing. Also, most of them don't have reviews since some were listened to (and barely gotten through) during the mire of 2015.


I don't know what it's like to read this as I doubt I'll ever try. The narrator for these is just so good and brings everybody to life. I've also discovered that I can both listen to them AND play Splatoon at the same time. As that game is taking over my life (more on that probably in another post), it's nice to be able to read and enjoy at the same time.


Anyway, if you like history fiction and mystery, this series is one you should definitely check out. Set during World War I, the main character, Bess Crawford, works as a nurse tending the wounded and dying in France and on transport ships. Unfortunately for Simon - a family friend - and her father, mystery and trouble seem to follow her. While this book does suffer a bit from what I call Introduction Syndrome, it's still quite a good story and mystery and well worth the attempt.


On to the next book in the series!
