The cliff's edge / Charles Todd.

Todd, Charles, (author.).


Restless and uncertain of her future in the wake of World War I, former battlefield nurse Bess Crawford agrees to travel to Yorkshire to help her cousin Melinda's friend through surgery. But circumstances change suddenly when news of a terrible accident reaches them. Bess agrees to visit the Neville family in the isolated village of Scarfdale, where one man has been killed and another gravely injured. The police are asking questions, and Bess is quickly drawn into the fray as two once-close families take sides, even as they are forced to remain in the same house until the inquest is completed. When another tragedy strikes, the police are ready to make an arrest. Bess struggles to keep order as tensions rise and shots are fired. What dark truth is behind these deaths? And what about the tale of an older murder--one that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Nevilles? Bess is unaware that when she passes the story on to Cousin Melinda, she will set in motion a revelation with the potential to change the lives of those she loves most--her parents, and her dearest friend, Simon Brandon... From inside cover.
