From the Editor

I work with many accomplished authors, but it is truly a special event when a novel of this calibre lands on my desk. From the opening pages and the crack of the cricket bat, I knew I was going to be completely transported into another world. The beloved author of over thirty bestselling books, including two ongoing mystery series, Rhys Bowen penned this fabulous stand-alone historical novel that kept me up late turning the pages.

Both a glimpse into the Downton-esque family life on a British estate called Farleigh Place and a World War II mystery, this book is full of vivid characters and situations that immerse you in the lives of the aristocracy. Each of the daughters of Lord Westerham, who grew up in this rarefied world, is deeply affected when a dead parachutist—likely a spy—is found in the grounds. Everyone, including family and staff, comes under suspicion as someone who might have colluded with the unknown military figure.

Ben Cresswell, the son of the town’s vicar and a close friend of the Westerhams, becomes our unlikely hero when he is called up by MI5 to use his connections to investigate. Ben ultimately risks his life and everything he loves as he works to find the truth, all the while knowing that many more lives are at stake.

At its heart, In Farleigh Field is a tale of a family and a formerly quiet British village that must endure and thrive in a world torn by conflict. As an avid fan of novels of this ilk, as well as of Rhys Bowen, I know you will join me in applauding this book, which is truly one of her very finest.

- Danielle Marshall, Editor
