Description

From the award-winning author of The Day I Died and The Lucky One, a captivating suspense novel about nurses during World War II who come to Agatha Christie's holiday estate to care for evacuated children, but when a body is discovered nearby, the idyllic setting becomes host to a deadly mystery.

Bridey Kelly has come to Greenway House—the beloved holiday home of Agatha Christie—in disgrace. A terrible mistake at St. Prisca's Hospital in London has led to her dismissal as a nurse trainee, and her only chance for redemption is a position in the countryside caring for children evacuated to safety from the Blitz.

Greenway is a beautiful home full of riddles: wondrous curios not to be touched, restrictions on rooms not to be entered, and a generous library, filled with books about murder. The biggest mystery might be the other nurse, Gigi, who is like no one Bridey has ever met. Chasing ten young children through the winding paths of the estate grounds might have soothed Bridey's anxieties and grief—if Greenway were not situated so near the English Channel and the rising aggressions of the war.

When a body washes ashore near the estate, Bridey is horrified to realize this is not a victim of war, but of a brutal killing. As the local villagers look among themselves, Bridey and Gigi discover they each harbor dangerous secrets about what has led them to Greenway. With a mystery writer's home as their unsettling backdrop, the young women must unravel the truth before their safe haven becomes a place of death . . .

        Starred review from August 23, 2021
        In 1941, trainee nurse Bridget Kelly, the heroine of this richly nuanced mystery from Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Rader-Day (The Lucky One), is mourning the bombing deaths of her mother and siblings when she makes a medication dosing mistake that kills a man. Her supervisor assigns her to care for children being evacuated from London and promises that if she does well, her training can resume. With 10 infants and toddlers and a fellow nurse who says her name is also Bridget Kelly but goes by Gigi, Bridget travels to Greenway, the Devon holiday home of author Agatha Christie, which is empty except for staff while Christie and her husband do war work. Gigi is unreliable and faints at the sight of blood, but her effervescence helps lighten Bridget’s sadness and self-doubt. When a strangled corpse is found in a nearby river, Bridget recognizes it as a man whom she discovered wandering in Greenway’s garden one morning. Soon afterward, Gigi disappears. Through multiple viewpoints, Rader-Day nicely evokes the isolation and dislocations of people in WWII Britain while revealing her characters’ complexities. Despite the many allusions to Christie’s life and work, she eschews an artificially neat conclusion. Fans of both Christie and Rader-Day will relish this. Agent: Sharon Bowers, Folio Literary.

        In Blitz-torn London, Bridey Kelly's standing as a nurse trainee is in jeopardy after she makes a disastrous mistake. She attempts to restore her supervisor's favor by agreeing to care for a group of children fleeing the city's constant bombings. Greenway, the evacuees' bucolic Devon rental, is owned by renowned mystery author Agatha Christie, a fitting detail considering the foreboding that Bridey has determinedly ignored since she boarded the train. Her secretive fellow nurse, Gigi, seems oddly familiar with a mysterious trio who have followed them from the London station to Greenway. When one of the three is killed, Bridey recognizes signs of strangling and only then learns of several other recent deaths that the village's new doctor has written off to natural causes. Ever the sharp-eyed survivor, Bridey suspects that the deaths are tied to Gigi's past and the rumors of a possible Nazi fifth column in the village. Rader-Day, known for masterfully weaving historical elements into her female-focused literary thrillers, imbues this wartime whodunit with palpable emotion as Bridey reconciles her family's bombing deaths through a plan to save another life.

        Agatha Christie would be pleased with Rader-Day's sixth novel (after The Lucky One), which takes place during World War II. Bridey Kelly, a trainee nurse who suffered a tragedy during the Blitz, has been assigned to assist in the evacuation and care of 10 children under the age of five, including two infants. Mr. and Mrs. Arbuthnot have rented Greenway, the house in the country that belongs to Mrs. Mallowan (better known as Agatha Christie), to house the evacuees. Bridey is joined by a second nurse who possesses neither skills nor a sense of responsibility. The two care for the children, navigate resentful townspeople, and try to decipher the role of the house servants. A drowning, unexplained deaths, missing pots of jam, possible espionage, and the specter of a frightening local legend wrap around the story of difficulties and fears in wartime Britain. While Agatha Christie makes very few appearances, her ownership of the house looms large. VERDICT This is an intriguing mystery with well-developed characters and fascinating historical details. For fans of Charles Todd and Jacqueline Winspear.
