Product description

Review

An excellent and convincing evocation of wartime London * C.J. Sansom * Compelling . . . Airth's atmosphere of London at war is superb * The Times * Airth's John Madden novels are must-reads * Daily Express * An almost too beautifully written series * New York Times * Rennie Airth keeps us riveted * Daily Mail * All the books by the less-than-prolific Rennie Airth are worth waiting for, and this fifth entry in the Inspector Madden series is outstanding. It's 1949 and Madden, now retired, reinvestigates the apparently solved murder of an actress in a novel that recalls Agatha Christie's classic Five Little Pigs in its treatment of the themes of time and justice. There can be no higher praise * Sunday Express *
