Rosalyn Landor, who has performed the nurse Bess Crawford mystery series since its inception, can be trusted to deliver a thoroughly satisfying listen. Her rich and expressive voice has the range to create believable male and female characters, including Americans, and she colors personalities affectingly. This eleventh book, set during the post-WWI armistice talks, finds Bess in France on a private mission to locate her nursing supervisor's son, who has disappeared from his work at the talks. The man she finally finds is damaged and in danger. Bess launches herself satisfyingly into the melee. The rather far-fetched plot is, nonetheless, diverting, and supported with interesting information on everything from opium to firearms. Throughout, Landor's knowledgeable performance adds an extra dollop of pleasure. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
