It is April 1915 and the world is in the bloody throws of a war the soldiers had once hoped would be over by last Christmas. Now, in the rat-infested trenches on the Western Front at Ypres, nobody knows when the horror will end - and nine-tenths of the British Expeditionary Force are already dead. Back in England, meanwhile, spring is in the air and most civilians have little idea of what their soldiers at the Front are enduring. Seeking to broadcast the truth, a young war correspondent for The Times called Eldon Prentice is gathering material to write a series of shockingly candid pieces. But then he is found dead in no-man's land - and it seems that the Germans are not responsible. For Joseph Reavley, now acting as Chaplain at the Front, the event has uncomfortable echoes of his own parents' tragedy: the deaths are undeniably linked. Murder and censorship are the dark weapons being secretly employed behind the lines - but by whom, and what will the final cost be at this time of national crisis?

This is one of the 5?/6 elements of Perry's WWI series. She really does a nice job of tieing them all togehter with a family and overf arching plot line. Not great literature but she definitely is one of the best of this genre of mystery/suspense. Notheing is overdone about the plot lines; all believable and you learn somethinga bout the war to end all wars in the process. Start with the first _ No Graves Yet -- to geet tehfull enjoyment
Publishers Weekly, 2004-07-26 In this excellent sequel to 2003's No Graves As Yet, bestseller Perry continues the exploits of the Reavley children, who lost their parents in a devastating car crash that proved to be no accident on the eve of WWI. The implications of that double homicide continue to dog Joseph, a military chaplain in the thick of trench warfare at Ypres; his sister, Judith, a volunteer driver/translator for the general in command of that front; and their brother, Matthew, an intelligence officer. While justice of a sort was meted out to the man directly responsible for the murder of their parents, the Reavleys believe a master manipulator and traitor they have dubbed the "Peacemaker," who seeks a radical alliance between king and kaiser to end the bloodshed, was the prime mover. When Joseph finds the corpse of an arrogant, bullying journalist in no-man's land, he soon realizes that a British hand was responsible, and that even in the midst of war's savagery, his conscience demands that he seek out the truth. This classic puzzle is nicely paralleled by Matthew's dogged search for the Peacemaker's identity. Perry cleverly resolves some plot lines while reserving the solution of others for future mysteries. Though her depiction of the ravages of war is not at the level of a Charles Todd, she does a superb job of bringing the grimness and waste to life, in a nice shift of gears from her two 19th-century historical series.
