I am thrilled to be joining in with BK Duncan’s The Last Post blog tour 🙂 

The Last Post

Many thanks to Sarah Hardy, at Bloodhound Books, for the opportunity to take part.

My review…..

The Last Post is an excellent introduction to BK Duncan’s soon-to-be-released book, Foul Trade. It’s the start of what promises to be a gripping series.

It might be short, but it certainly packs a punch. I found it to be quite a powerful story which introduces us to May Keaps who is a 20 year old ambulance driver. Keaps is stationed on the front line (set in 1918). The men she transports have horrific, all too often fatal, injuries. I can’t even begin to imagine having to do that.

When a young captain is found dead, it looks like suicide. Keaps finds herself in the possession of something which may explain why.

Keaps is an intriguing character. Feisty, but likeable. I’m looking forward to catching up with her again.

The Last Post is FREE to download and I highly recommend you give it a go.

I’m very much looking forward to reading Foul Trade.

The Last Post cover

Book Description…..

It is April 1918. 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, Tobias Fairfax.


Newly-arrived in Northern France he was found with a discharged pistol by his side; rumours on the battlefield were that it wasn’t an accident and he had taken the coward’s way out, committing suicide.


Whatever the explanation, Tobias left a dangerous legacy that puts May in the line of fire. But she is not the only one with a reason to want to uncover the truth. And in a world where life can be extinguished in the blink of an eye, May might regret her search for answers…


The Last Post is the haunting introduction to the May Keaps series.

About the author…..

BK Duncan

BK Duncan is the pen name Ruth Wade has adopted for the May Keaps series of historical crime novels.

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 change-management consultancy she now combines producing her own work with lecturing part-time in creative writing in colleges and academies in Cambridge and Oxford. Her two great passions are longbow archery and the Argentine Tango. Sadly, she is not nearly as accomplished at either as she’d like.

BK Duncan also writes historical crime novels as Ruth Wade.
