The Custom House Murder : The intricate wartime murder mystery Paperback / softback

Part of the Blitz Detective series

Paperback / softback


First Published as Enemy Action. September, 1940. With London having endured the Blitz for nearly a month, people are calling for vengeance, but once again the night heralds more destruction.

In Custom House, anxious residents dutifully head to the nearest public air-raid shelter as the warning siren wails. When dawn brings the all-clear, people disperse, but one man remains - he is dead, stabbed through the heart.

Detective Inspector John Jago discovers that the victim was a pacifist.

But why, then, was he carrying a loaded revolver in his pocket?
