Tessa Arlen, Death of an Unsung Hero

In 1916, the world is at war and the energetic Lady Montfort has persuaded her husband to offer his family's dower house to the War Office as an auxiliary hospital for officers recovering from shell-shock with their redoubtable housekeeper Mrs. Jackson contributing to the war effort as the hospital's quartermaster.

Despite the hospital's success, the farming community of Haversham, led by the Montfort's neighbor Sir Winchell Meacham, does not approve of a country-house hospital for men they consider to be cowards. When Captain Sir Evelyn Bray, one of the patients, is found lying face down in the vegetable garden with his head bashed in, both Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson have every reason to fear that the War Office will close their hospital. Once again the two women unite their diverse talents to discover who would have reason to murder a war hero suffering from amnesia.

Brimming with intrigue, Tessa Arlen's Death of an Unsung Hero brings more secrets and more charming descriptions of the English countryside to the wonderful Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson series.

Tessa Arlen lives on an island in the Puget Sound. Her pleasures in life are simple: cooking and enjoying good food with family and friends, long walks with short legged dogs and planning her next garden project. She is the author of the Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson mysteries, including Death of an Unsung Hero.
