A world war II boook

 This  is a  murder  mystery with  a  touch of  romance  it which is  set  in London in World  War  II.  The author claims her  story is  based  on true facts.  The  events  take place during the  London  Blitz  in 1940. The detective finds a  body which every one  suspects  was killed  by a  bomb but on a  closer look he  finds she was murdered.   Questions arise  why? And How? This  turns  into a  very tangled  mess. I found it a  fine  read  but not  one  i would read  again, yet  there  were  lots of  twists  to this  story.

The author  did  a  good  job  to transport  one  back to London. One  can learn a lot  about how it  was  to live in this  place  during the  war. Yet I did not like that  they had to put a women in it as  he describes  her  an attractive  American war corespondent.  This almost distracts  the  detective  from his  duties.

Apart from this point  I did enjoy!

I received this book from the publisher through Kregel  in exchange for my honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
