This first book in a planned World War II mystery series is set in a U.S. Army field hospital in Sicily in 1943, where nurses contend with heat, dirt, the threat of German counterattack, and a flood of horribly wounded GIs. Military Police lieutenant Eddie Harkins is called there to investigate the murder of Dr. Myers Stephenson. Harkins and nurse Kathleen Donnelly, a childhood friend who may be something more, struggle to find the killer as the battle lines push forward.
