Lady Montfort and her pragmatic housekeeper Mrs. Jackson
investigate a murder of a WWI officer with amnesia in the
20th-century English countryside.
Building on the success of her last three mysteries in the
same series, Tessa Arlen returns us to the same universe
in Death of an Unsung Hero with more secrets, intrigue,
and charming descriptions of the English countryside.
In 1916, the world is at war and the energetic Lady
Montfort has persuaded her husband to offer the dower
house to the War Office as an auxiliary hospital for
officers recovering from shell-shock with their
redoubtable housekeeper Mrs. Jackson contributing to the
war effort as the hospital’s quartermaster.
Despite the hospital’s success, the farming community of
Haversham, led by the Monfort’s neighbor Sir Winchell
Meacham, does not approve of a country-house hospital for
men they consider to be cowards. When Sir Evelyn Bray, one
of the patients, is found lying face down in the garden
with his head bashed in, both Lady Montfort and Mrs.
Jackson have every reason to fear that the War Office will
close their hospital. Once again the two women unite their
diverse talents to discover who would have reason to
murder a war hero suffering from amnesia.
