Atmospherically set in an environment that is basically self-contained (as are so many of the well done golden age mysteries), this is a well constructed whodunit with a memorable detective (wonderfully brought to life in the film version by Alistair Sim.) Brand wrote a number of good mysteries, but this is her masterpiece and can be reread every few years with almost the same enjoyment as the first time. (And watch for the clues you missed originally.)

A murder is committed on an operating table in full view of 7 people. Our intrepid detective happens to have been admitted to same hospital following an air raid. He's not 100%, but gets his man (or woman). A classic and basis for several film versions.

In this British mystery which takes place amid the bombing raids of 1944, death visits a hospital, and the murderer must be one of three doctors or three nurses.
