The Return of Captain John Emmett
A Laurence Bartram Mystery by Elizabeth Speller
Review: Elizabeth Speller opens her debut novel with a reversed occurrence after the conclusion of a war. Instead of a soldier being lost, the family of Laurence Bartram is gone instead. His wife and son have died while he was on the battlefield. The tragedy of so many families experienced during the Great War had happened to him.
Special thanks to Lynne Gordon for contributing her review of The Return of Captain John Emmett.
