Lady Elizabeth Hartleigh Compton,
amateur sleuth of the small community
of Sitting Marsh where there always seems to be a murder in need of solving, returns. Struggling to keep her Manor House financially sound in WW II England, she hosts visiting U.S. officers, including the attract-ive American Major Earl Monroe. But not everyone welcomes the U.S. troops, and four red-headed soldiers mysteriously die after eating at the local pub.

Kingsbury maintains a small cast
of well-developed characters. From the
stumbling policemen Sid and George to Elizabeth's own staff of quirky servants, the author brings her enigmatic characters to life. Lacing the mystery of the poisoned soldiers with the trials of wartime romance, Kingsbury brings a stunning conclusion to this crafty novel. (Apr., 208 pp., $5.99)
