    I read this book as a download from Project Gutenberg I quite enjoyed the book As a tale of life during WWI, it was fun to read There was a good mystery and I didn t find it hard to place myself in the shoes of Roger Merton, the narrator of the story Anyone interested in historical fiction from the early 1900s would probably enjoy this book.
