Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In a departure from his other mystery series, featuring a WWI veteran-turned-detective who suffers from shell shock, A DUTY TO THE DEAD spotlights Bess Crawford, a nurse who is serving her country during the same war. Bess returns to England to recuperate after surviving a dramatic brush with death in the opening chapter. Rosalyn Landor achieves the perfect timbre for Bess's firm yet feminine introspection. Voices of men are remarkably strong and forthright, and Landor even sparkles with crisp accents from other parts of the British Isles. The mystery unfolds as Bess visits the Graham house in Kent to deliver a dying soldier's final missive. A whirlwind of intrigue and murder ensues, endangering Bess beyond the war's perils. Landor recounts this combination Great War/country house mystery with elegant timing and audible suspense that result in a compelling enigma.
