In the Spring of 1926, the corpses of three men are found in shallow graves off the beaten path in Epping Forest outside of London--each shot through the heart and bearing no identification. DCI Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, the lead detective, is immediately given two urgent orders by his supervisor at the Yard: solve the murders quickly and keep his wife, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, away from the case! Thankfully, Daisy's off visiting their daughter at school. But when a teacher is found dead, Daisy is once again in the thick of it. As Daisy tries to solve one murder, Alec discovers that the three victims in his case were in the same Army company during World War I, that their murders are likely related to specific events that unfolded during that tragic conflict, and that, unless the killer is revealed and stopped, those three might only be the beginning.

I enjoy cozies of all sorts. From the more intense ones to the lighter, frothy ones. This book is on the lighter side. From my viewpoint, I need frosting sometimes. When I want a lighter read, I go for Swenson, Daheim, etc. When I want heavy, I go for Kellerman. Love the variety. Love this one!

If you're a fan, SKIP! Did not have the same feel as other Daisy mysteries.

If the inhumanities of war sicken you--and in this case it is against a fellow-soldier--don't bother to start this book. The descriptive part is introduced toward the end of the book, by which time you have become deeply involved in the mystery, and are ready to learn the solution.
