Heathcliff Lennox - France 1918: A wartime romance - a short story prequel to the Heathcliff Lennox Murder Mystery series Kindle Edition
Spring, 1918. The Great War is at a crucial stage, the Germans are making one last push into France and the Allies are struggling to hold them back.
Battle lines are shifting and men, and their machines, are being sent up and down the front to shore up defences.
Major Heathcliff Lennox, and his batman Greggs, are told to report to their new HQ.
They set off on a sunlit day to fly the distance, but the enemy is never far away, and disaster strikes. They're sent crashing to the ground behind enemy lines, where life, death and love await.
Major Heathcliff Lennox, WW1 war pilot, six feet 3 inches, tousled, dark blond hair, named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother - much to his great annoyance.

1. It is very short.
2. There is no murder to solve.
3. The tale outlines the backstory of several characters in a prequel.
While there is an explanation of Lennox's state of mind in the first volume and of how Foggy, the world's worst hunting dog, came into Lennox's life, readers know from the beginning of the story what the ending will be.
When I purchased this, I felt the need to be removed from my current place and time. This story was little solace, but reminded me that times are often even tougher.
He's brave, bright, and imperturbable. It was obvious he was made that way by the deaths of so many of his friends and acquaintances, while surviving and fighting for crown and country. His experience as a 'hunting and shooting' squire serve him well behind enemy lines.
However, Greggs has apparently ALWAY been Greggs.
We also get to meet the tragic Eloise who is mentioned occasionally in the novels.
I think an opportunity was lost because it wasn't used as an introductory setup for a postwar mystery or spy intrigue. Imagine for example: why was the colonel at the front rather than his post at the capitol? Did the deserter kill him, or was he killed by someone else, and if so, for what reason? What actually happened to the girl? Was she buried at the tomb Lennox found, or was it part of a subterfuge to allow her to escape? Who, beside Lennox, are these deaths of interest to? What — or who — are they seeking and why is it important now after the end of the war and the change of governments? Is Lennox imperiled or under suspicion in some way?
Not thrilled with some of these books. I like a little mystery. Too many dishwater ladies with no substance. But they pass the time and read fast. M
