BOOK BEGINNINGS: AN IMPARTIAL WITNESS by CHARLES TODD 24.6.16


AN IMPARTIAL WITNESS by
writing team, 
Charles Todd
Book 2 A Bess Crawford Mystery
Publisher:  William Morrow/Harper Collins
Published:  2010

My Friday Book Beginnings
feature for Rose City Reader's meme.

The opening sentence or two of my
book of choice?


"As my train pulled into London, I looked out at the early summer rain and was glad to see the dreary day had followed me from Hampshire.  It suited my mood."
~
An intriguing plot of WWI nurse, Bess Crawford, accompanying a convoy of soldiers from France to London.  
One of her patients is a young pilot who has been burned beyond recognition, and who clings to life and the photo of his wife that is pinned to his tunic.
Bess discovers a newspaper with a drawing of the woman's face on the front page. Accompanying the drawing is a plea from Scotland Yard seeking information from anyone who has seen her. For it appears that the woman was murdered on the very day Bess encountered her at the station.

My Thoughts?
Having earlier read another in the series, my interest was piqued.  A library book sale offered up two hardcovers this week, so I'll begin this book 2 for 
PARIS in JULY at Tamara's Thyme for Tea.

I like the book beginnings idea and am taking part in it too. I haven't read this series; books set in Paris are a plus since I spent 2 summers in Paris. My book beginnings books has a fabulous first sentence, and the setting is Paris.

I have no idea why but when I first looked at the title I saw "Imperial Waitress"...is that weird? :D
