A Duty to the Dead

A Duty to the Dead - Charles Todd

I enjoyed this English mystery.  The first chapter was very good.  The book settles into a nice English mystery after that,  with our main character, Bess Crawford,  fulfilling a promise to a dying soldier by relaying a message to his family. That message unearths a host  of secrets and a mystery Bess is intent on solving.  

Bess is a great heroine.  She's strong, intelligent,  independent and very direct. She's not perfect but likable.  


The mystery was not terribly hard to figure out, but it's rich and  well told. 


An enjoyable read!
