The previous book, An Unmarked Grave, was the first book in this series that I didn't find as excellent as the rest so I was hopeful that the next one would be better. And it was. The story in this book is more interesting and I found it hard to put the book down.
The book is really intriguing to read. Bess is trying to find out if Lieutenant Wade still alive, and if he is what is he doing fighting in the front and was he really guilty of the crimes in India and England? Bess and Simon Brandon (he works for her father) is working together trying to find out the truth without involving Bess father, Colonel Crawford because the killing is still a stain on the Colonels regiment's reputation and Bess doesn't want to involve her father if it turns out that it Wade isn't alive. So, she travels to the village where the killing of a family took place and tries to find out more about the murdered family and the connection to Lieutenant Wade. But, that's not that easy, some people there are even quite hostile towards her. But, Bess won't give up.
What I love with this book is that it's like a puzzle, you have to be patient, piece after piece is revealed during the progress of the story until the truth is revealed in the end. I also loved that my favorite Aussie, Sergeant Larimore made a cameo, although I wish he had a bigger part in the book.Read more ›
With the fifth in the Bess Crawford series, A Question Of Honor, we see more of Bess's early life in India where she lived with her father, a colonel in the British army. The story begins in 1908 when Bess was fifteen and takes us to England and France in 1918. More often than not at that time officers would send their children home to be educated. Unfortunately for one family stationed in India they receive word that their daughter, Alice, died of typhoid in England. Of course, her mother is overwrought and since her husband cannot get leave she is accompanied to England by an officer who had planned to go there, one Thomas Wade.
After Wade returns to duty he flees from the military police who accuse him not only of murdering a family while he was in England but his own parents in Agra, India. Wade escapes capture until finally a report of his death is received.
Fast forward to wartime on the front where Bess listens to a dying soldier who confides in her - he shares a secret with her, shocking news relating to Thomas Wade. It begins to seem that the past is not buried after all. Knowing Bess she will search for answers and eventually find them.
A Question Of Honor is one more stellar offering in this series. Don't miss it!

Todd's protagonist Bess Crawford is a World War I field nurse and an amateur sleuth, daughter of a doughty India fighter, the Colonel Sahib; she has inherited his well-developed sense of duty. It is the spring of 1918; and the "Great War" is finally winding down with the entrance of the Americans, though few at the time realize it.Read more ›
