The first girl had a bite mark on her neck, but they traced the DNA to her boyfriend. But the tabloids got hold of the story and called the killer 'The Rottweiler' and the name stuck. The latest murder takes place very near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Marylebone. When the Rottweiler’s trinkets start showing up in the shop, suddenly, everyone Inez knows is a suspect, and the killer feels all too close.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A story of Romance, power, war and destitution this one has it all. A family of some standing is put to the test of war and losing family members and becoming financially stretched - this one is interesting if you like period dramas.
