A Question of Honor: A Bess Crawford Mystery (Bess Crawford Mysteries) by Charles Todd

A Question of Honor by Charles ToddReviewed by Nancy Eaton

Bess Crawford’s father was a colonel stationed in India. A Question of Honor begins with a prologue that gives the reader background information about the family’s time there.

Even though the time in India was a happy time for the family, something happened that tarnished the reputation of Colonel Crawford’s regiment. One of the officers who Colonel Crawford had trained is a murderer. His name is Lt. Wade. He killed five people and was never brought to trial. Everyone believed that Lt. Wade had died in the mountains.

Now, ten years later, Bess is still working as a nurse in the front lines. Bess then learned from a dying Sgt. that Lt. Wade is still alive. Bess is determined to find Lt. Wade to try and figure out what made this man a killer.

Bess used her leave to investigate. She has a very personal agenda of her own. She wanted to be able to help clear the damaged reputation of her father’s regiment.

Will Bess Crawford be able to solve this case?

I have read several of the Charles Todd books in this series and I feel A Question of Honor is the best one yet. As usual, the writing team of Charles Todd has done their research to make this story appear very real to the reader and also lets one imagine how it was to be living during this era.

I loved the setting of the story. The book cover is intriguing and makes you want to read this book. A Question of Honor is a complex story with a well-developed plot and a very satisfying conclusion.
