Rosalyn Landor is a sublime choice to narrate this seventh Bess Crawford mystery, based on a true event. It's 1918, the closing days of WWI, when Sister Bess Crawford, a nurse, meets the Ashton family. Two years earlier, the Ashton Gunpowder Mill exploded, killing 100 employees; the locals who blame them for the disaster want revenge. Landor captures each character to perfection, including his or her social or military status and emotional range. Landor's best portrayals are the warm, intelligent, determined Crawford herself and her willing assistant, Sergeant Lassiter, a "Kookaburra"-whistling Australian. Listeners will enjoy hearing Crawford use her many contacts to arrive at the truth while also getting a very personal look at the horror of the war. S.G.B. [Published: JANUARY 2016]
