For Whom Death Tolls
MEET ELIZABETH HARTLEIGH COMPTON. SHE'S THE HOUSE-RICH, MONEY-POOR KEEPER OF THE MANOR--AND KEEPER OF THE PEACE...

In WWII England, the quiet village of Sitting Marsh is faced with food rations and fear for loved ones. But Elizabeth Hartleigh Compton, lady of the Manor House, stubbornly insists that life must go on. Sitting Marsh residents depend on Elizabeth to make sure things go smoothly. Which means everything from sorting out gossip to solving the occasional murder...

At five past three in the morning, the town of Sitting Marsh was awakened by church bells. It was supposed to be the signal for a German invasion. Instead, Elizabeth discovers something equally alarming ... the body of an American GI, hanging from the bell rope. In a town filled with growing tension between Yanks and less-than-welcoming villagers, this surely won't help matters. Elizabeth can only hope the murder is an isolated incident--and not a wake-up call of more to come.
