    Immerses you in life in England mainly provincial military life during the second world war Starts off keenly, and develops the three main characters well they become interesting in themselves, so part of the interest of this mystery is the love triangle The climax itself seemed flat and disappointing.

    Detective Suzie Mountford goes spy catching.
