An Unwilling Accomplice
By Charles Todd (William Morrow, 352 pages)
When a wounded World War I soldier disappears, a British nurse is implicated in the murder he’s accused of committing and must solve more than one mystery to clear her name. Charles Todd is the nom de plume for Delaware-based mother-and-son authors Caroline and Charles Todd. Their new book is filled with the sort of edgy realism that makes for the perfect summer read. The Todds will be at Main Point Books on Aug. 17. 1041 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr, (610) 525-1480, www.mainpointbooks.com.
