SUMMER BOOK TALKS, North Park

Book talk led by Dano Cammarota, this year devoted to historical fiction. This week's selection is A Test of Wills (1996) by Charles Todd.

I’ve chosen the first book in a mystery series featuring a Scotland Yard inspector as it is a historical explanation of residual trauma from the World War I trenches. Surviving the Somme, the inspector returns to civic life to find himself haunted by his war experiences, which both help and hinder his investigation of a murdered colonel in 1919. It is a well-plotted novel where not all the demons are frightful.
