The WW1 setting for a murder was different and well handled with interesting description of life in the trenches. The twist at the end caught me by surprise.

Another great read. Murder at Zero Hour takes place during World War One in France. It captures the conflict between the American main character and his fellow English officers until it builds to a murder mystery. Editing isn't perfect but not bad enough to detract, a few missing words here and there. Congratulations to the author.

One of the best books I've read at Smashwords. It's set in France during WWI in the trenches with the British against the German Army. Great story and characters. And there's a murder mystery in all of that. The writing reminds me of Ken Follett's style.

Though the start of the story was a bit slow, I was hooked by the idea that something had happened to the main character, only I didn't know what. I just had to keep reading to find out. I did have some initial confusion as to the time period of the story as it wasn't stated outright. But the description of the setting quickly drew me in. The detail of life in the trenches during World War I was very well done. I have read a lot of books set in war with battles and such and this was in my opinion as good a quality as any of those. The twist to the plot was super. I didn't see it coming at all. There were some minor grammar mistakes, misplaced words probably left from previous edits. This is really a great book that deserves more praise than it has gotten. A highly recommended read for anyone into historical fiction and mysteries.
