I’m attempting to compile a list of mystery series that are set during World War One or shortly afterwards (say, through the 1920s) that refer back to the war or the resulting social changes. I am looking for suggestions! Doesn’t matter if you liked the series or not.
Here’s what I have so far:
–Anne Perry’s WWI series
[tried, didn’t get into]
–Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs series
[read first one, got depressed, didn’t read any more]
–Catriona McPherson’s Dandy Gilver series
[read a later volume in the series for review, will read more]
–Charles Todd’s two series (Inspector Rutledge and Bess Crawford)
[am a couple volumes into the Rutledge series; first of Crawford series is on order]
–Suzanne Arruda’s Jade Del Cameron series
[first in series is on order]
–Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher series
[read several volumes]
Anyone have further suggestions for this list? If you could tell me a little about the books, as well, that would be great.
On Twitter, @Yagathai suggested “The first book in the John Madden series, by Rennie Airth. River of Darkness.”
