“A wonderful new mystery series that will let us see the horrors of World War I through the eyes of Bess Crawford, battlefield nurse.”
—Margaret Maron

“Readers who can’t get enough of Jacqueline Winspear’s novels, or Hester Latterly, who saw action in the Crimean War in a series of novels by Anne Perry, are bound to be caught up in the adventures of Bess Crawford.”
New York Times Book Review

The critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author of the Ian Rutledge mystery series, Charles Todd once again spotlights World War I nurse Bess Crawford in An Unmarked Grave. Gripping, powerful, and evocative, this superb mystery masterwork unfolds during the deadly Spanish Influenza pandemic of 1918, as Bess discovers the body of a murdered British officer among the many dead and sets out to unmask a craven killer.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 2/16/2014

    " I think for nothing other than the research ncessay to capture the time period, I give this five stars. There is still the slightly depressing setting of World War I but I do like the series. I think that in the past, I have deducted a star for the depressing setting but this time I felt that was perhaps a misguided thought since I obviously keep coming back to this good series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 2/11/2014

    " Really good book. Would definitely read more by this author. Christian book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/1/2014

    " After hearing the mother and son team talk at PLA I put this series on my reading list. Unfortunately, I picked up the last book in the series, "Bess Crawford Mystery." This is hisorical fiction and mystery in one book. Bess Crawford, a nurse working the battlefied during WWI, is shown a soldier's body as it waits for burial. The problem is she doesn't think he died in battle. What happened to this man? Bess takes it upon herself to find this out. Even with her father's military connection she is not safe. Three star rating because sometimes the book plods along. "

    " A great addition to the Bess Crawford Series. I love these books, and the Todds! "

    " Interesting to read about WWI "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 1/16/2014

    " Probably the weakest of Charles Todd's WWI mysteries - but that still leaves plenty in it to enjoy. Terribly far fetched, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Nelson | 1/16/2014

    " Thought there were more loose ends in this book than in many of the others in the series. Entertaining, but at times confusing and improbable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melony Graham | 12/6/2013

    " I like this series so much I am going to read there other mystery series. I think it is sweet that a son and mother write together, I'm sure she adds a spot of class to the books. Usually books written by men tend to forget the softer side. These are a lovely balance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Lewis hendrickson | 10/19/2013

    " Really enjoying the series. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Angel | 8/12/2013

    " 3.5--very readable. Like the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Schweitzer | 7/31/2013

    " Another of the Bess Crawford series--a nurse in WW1--very interesting setting but just an average story--not as good as earlier ones. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sanna | 6/24/2013

    " Well written and rich in historical detail and atmosphere, as always. But the plot was a complete shambles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 5/12/2013

    " I am really liking this series. Bess and her family are very interesting. The WWI backdrop is realistic and exciting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/15/2013

    " I like the character of Bess Crawford and that is why I keep reading the series. The mysteries are interesting as well as the characters she interacts with. I like the historical period of WWI (even before I watched Downton Abbey). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/31/2012

    " Nice installment in the series; interesting plot, though I found the ending a little anticlimactic after the suggestions that had been tossed around earlier in the story. Eager to find out what's going to happen with Bess and Simon... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig | 11/30/2012

    " As seems to be the case with all books in this series, both the characters and the plot are pretty flat. OK is about it I'm afraid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tessa | 11/29/2012

    " I enjoyed it but found the denouement slightly muddled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Bruner | 8/28/2012

    " This may be the best in the Bess Crawford series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexis | 7/9/2012

    " I liked this latest entry in the series but I would have given it more stars if the solution to the murder mystery had been the author's semi-red herring rather than the actual ending. "
