A RENDEZVOUS WITH DEATH (Amateur Sleuth / Soldier) – G-
W.Y. Boyd – 4th book
Elton-Wolf Publishing, 2003 – Hardcover
Set in the midst of battle during WWII, an officer hears a woman’s cry and, by the time he reaches the barn, finds a woman with her throat cut and an officer, nephew of unit Commander Coleman, who’s been shot. Coleman appoints Second Lieutenant Charles Donnelly to find the killer at the same time trying to keep he and his men alive during battle.
Although the mystery is a little thin and the dialogue a bit awkward, the descriptions of the men and their experience of battle alone make this a book worth reading.
