Pg. 69: Philip Gray's "Two Storm Wood"

Featured at the Page 69 Test: Two Storm Wood: A Novel by Philip Gray.

About the book, from the publisher:
In this thriller set on the battlefields of the Somme after the end of World War I, a woman investigates the disappearance of her fiancé.

The Great War has ended, but for Amy Vanneck there is no peace. Her fiancé, Edward Haslam, a lieutenant in the 7th Manchesters, is missing, presumed dead. Amy travels to the desolate battlefields of northern France to learn his fate and recover his body.

She’s warned that this open-air morgue is no place for a civilian, much less a woman, but Amy is willing to brave the barbed wire, the putrid water, and the rat-infested tunnels that dot the landscape. Her search is upended when she discovers the scene of a gruesome mass murder. What does it signify? Soon Amy begins to have suspicions that Edward might not really be dead. Disquieting and yet compulsively readable, Two Storm Wood builds to an ending that is both thrilling and emotionally riveting.
