A Fine Summer's Day, by Charles Todd
This is a prequel to the haunted Ian Rutledge books, and it's interesting to see what kind of a man he was before war scoured his soul. As the first world war begins on the Continent, Ian manages to link together four seemingly unrelated deaths by laudanum. You get to meet his fiance, sister, and friends when they were younger and a bit naive. It's complicated enough that I'm enjoying re-listening.
