Special to The Globe and Mail

Another great historical mystery from Jennings, whose popular Murdoch series is a television staple. It’s 1942. Detective Inspector Tom Tyler has been assigned to the small town of Ludlow in Shropshire. It could be a quiet backwater for Tyler, after the bombs in London, but he’s barely in town before a particularly grisly double murder occurs at St. Anne’s Convalescent Hospital. There appears no possible motive or suspects. The hospital is run by Anglican nuns and the patients are all horribly injured servicemen, most with multiple amputations, blind, helpless. Visitors are screened and the faint of heart or stomach kept out. It is not a place easily accessed. In short, we have an excellent historical mystery with a good locked-room plot and Jennings keeps the suspense going right to the end. Television series, anyone?”
