Sinopsis:

It's summer 1922: Jack Haldean, crime writer and former Royal Flying Corps pilot, is enjoying the village fete. But then, one of Jack's fellow officers is shot in the fortune teller's tent and another ex-colleague found dead at the local pub. Jack soon realises that the roots of the crime go back to the Battle of the Somme when a group of British soldiers were betrayed, ambushed and killed in the tunnels beneath the Augier Ridge. Once again, he must face a deadly enemy.

From the Author:

I've always loved the Golden Age classic crime, with smokey old London, a country house and the "guilty villages" of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers. I wanted to write a book that  (in my own mind at least!) captured some of that charm, character, pace and sheer enjoyment.   I wanted, as well, to ground the events firmly and historically "After the War" .  The First World War shattered all the old certainties; nothing was ever the same again.   I visited the French and Belgian battlefields and discovered the miles of tunnels that lie beneath the chalk of the Somme - and the story of "Fete" started to come together.  There was a secret in those tunnels... a secret that had been buried for years.  I had my story.
