It is April 1918 and May Keaps is a twenty year old ambulance driver stationed at The Front. As if transporting hideously wounded soldiers, sleep deprivation and constant shell bombardment weren’t enough, she becomes unwittingly entangled in the untimely death of a young captain of the Cambridgeshire Pals’ Battalion. Newly-arrived in Northern France he was found with a discharged pistol by his side; rumours on the battlefield were it wasn’t an accident but that he had taken the coward’s way out and committed suicide. Whatever the explanation, Tobias Fairfax left a dangerous legacy of his past that only May finds herself in a position to de-fuse. Except she is not the only one with a desperate reason to get to the bottom of the truth. And by someone who, in a world where life can be extinguished in the blink of an eye, has nothing left to lose. Faith’s Reward is a prequel to the historical crime novel, Foul Trade.

About the Author

Born on a steam railway and brought up on the South Coast of England, such beginnings were destined to leave BK Duncan with a love of vintage transport, crashing seas, and Art Deco architecture. Following a career encompassing developmental learning and management consultancy, specialising in personal and organisational change, she made the switch to full time writer, combining producing her own work with lecturing in creative writing in colleges and academies in Hertfordshire and Cambridge. Her summers are spent on two never-ending tasks – re-pointing the walls of her flint cottage and reclaiming the wilderness of her meadow garden. For relaxation she reads, goes to the theatre, and explores the local countryside but her two great passions are longbow archery and the Argentine Tango. Sadly, she is not nearly as accomplished at either as she’d like. Her proudest moment was when she overcame her fear of deep water to go potholing in the Yorkshire Pennines.
