In the early summer of 1917, Bess Crawford is charged with
escorting a convoy of severely wounded soldiers from the trenches
of France to England. Among them is a young pilot, burned beyond
recognition, who carries a photograph of his wife pinned to his
tunic. But later, in a crowded railway station, Bess sees the same
woman bidding a heart-wrenching farewell to a departing officer,
clearly not her husband.
Back on duty in France, Bess is shocked to discover the wife's
photograph in a newspaper accompanying a plea from Scotland Yard
for information about her murder, which took place on the very day
Bess witnessed that anguished farewell. Granted leave to speak with
the authorities, Bess very quickly finds herself entangled in a
case of secrets and deadly betrayal in which another life hangs in
the balance, and her search for the truth could expose her to far
graver dangers than those she faces on the battlefield.
