Publisher's Summary

During a blackout on the streets of London in late 1944, a young Polish land girl, Rosa Nowak, is suddenly and brutally killed. But the police, their resources already stretched by war regulations and the thriving black market, cannot find any reason why someone would want to murder an innocent refugee.

For the former police inspector John Madden, the crime hits close to home. Rosa was working on his farm, and he feels personally responsible for not protecting her. His old Scotland Yard colleagues, Angus Sinclair and Billy Styles, struggle to make sense of their few clues. Their only lead points towards Europe - but as the fighting sweeps across the continent, will they find the killer before he strikes again?

Dixon of Dock Green meets Jack the Ripper .

This author seems to think that his characters become more interesting the more he intensifies their stupidity , they blunder from one incompetence to the next always an hour behind the villain of the piece , there are more corpses than on Midsummer Murders . We have a final blood and guts that solves everything . At least there is no foul language and for that this deserves four stars across the board .
