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.
