HARPERCOLL

“Todd’s novels are known for compelling plotting with a thoughtful whodunit aspect, rich characterization, evocative prose, and haunting atmosphere.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Readers who can’t get enough of [Jacqueline Winspear’s] Maisie Dobbs…are bound to be caught up in the adventures of Bess Crawford.”
New York Times Book Review

To great critical acclaim, author Charles Todd introduced protagonist Bess Crawford in A Duty to the Dead. The dedicated World War I nurse returns in An Impartial Witness, and finds herself in grave peril when a moral obligation makes her the inadvertent target of a killer. As hauntingly evocative as Todd’s award-winning, New York Times bestselling Ian Rutledge novels, An Impartial Witness transports readers to a dark time of war and involves us in murder, intrigue, and the fascinating affairs of a truly unforgettable cast of characters.

A great follow up to A Duty to the Dead

An Impartial Witness is a good story but it is not so well written and plotted as the Ian Rutledge series. i was put off by the repetitiveness of the action and the two-dimensional quality of the characters. The Heroine, Bess, and her trusted Protector, Simon, are usually dashing about the countryside in forays for information. This in itself is odd because during WWI petrol must have been scarce. Bess is alternatively courageous and helpless, and Simon is always there to accompany her or arrive at the just the right moment to rescue and comfort her.. Many of the characters are caricatures who have little actual relationship to one another, and the relationship Bess has with her family seems incidental rather than real.
The Ian Rutledge books are very beautifully written. The language itself is a pleasure to read. Yes, the ghost remarks in his head could be tiresome but were mostly helpful in the later books.
This book does rate three stars for being a good story and worth a read.

Charles Todd is an outstanding find ... a new mystery writer that has captured my attention. I hope that this dynamic writing team continues for many years.
