No Known Grave

I finished the Tom Tyler series by Maureen Jennings about a week ago (forgive me, I’ve been redesigning, so posting has been slow). It’s much better than the second book, but the first book is the real star of this series.

No Known Grave sees Tom Tyler moving to a new village and attempting to start his life over. He is immediately embroiled in a double murder at a local hospital for those who’ve been terribly injured in the war. And this group of people at the hospital become the all encompassing focus of the story. Why were two murdered? What’s really going on?

I won’t say too much more, but the end isn’t great again. For some reason Jennings rushes through the reveal and ends the book suddenly, not quite as suddenly as the second one, but close. I don’t quite understand why she doesn’t want to write much falling action there, but oh well.
