Charles and Caroline Todd are a mother-and-son writing team who live on the east coast of the United States. Together, they have written nearly thirty mysteries, including the Ian Rutledge and Bess Crawford series.
"As always, the Todds deftly juggle clues and red herrings, leading Bess and readers on a brisk chase... Their intimate knowledge of rural England and the Great War period inject Bess' first-person account with a hefty dose of verisimilitude." -- Wilmington Star News "The seventh book in an excellent series featuring Bess Crawford." -- Contra Costa Times "Bess' seventh case... does its strong, determined heroine credit." -- Kirkus Reviews
