Publisher's Summary

May 1915. With thousands of Britons fighting in the trenches, a severely depleted police force remains behind to keep the Home Front safe. Scotland Yard is already overstretched when the sinking of the Lusitania sparks an unprecedented wave of anti-German riots and arson attacks.
Among the victims is the immigrant tailor Jacob Stein, found dead in his burnt-out shop. Initially Jacob’s killing appears to be the tragic excess of wartime hysteria – but when it transpires that Jacob had been stabbed, his safe ransacked, and his daughter Ruth raped, the possibility that these assaults were long-premeditated crimes becomes unavoidable.
Detective Inspector Harvey Marmion and Sergeant Joe Keedy must take on this case of cover-ups and contradictions and track down Jacob’s killer and Ruth’s assailants.

Even better than the Railway Detective!

I have enjoyed every minute of this recording; the story was interesting, the characters engaging and the narration very well performed. Can't wait to hear the sequel.

- Learning is fun!

Entertaining enough.

A new author for me but a period of time I like reading about in my crime/mystery books.

Found this one a bit slow and I got distracted a little bit which meant I had to rewind every so often. Plot was reasonable and not far fetched as were the main characters but it just didn't have the bite I look for. It doesn't need to be gory or scary but it must hold my attention and leave me wanting more this book did nether. Although it hasn't put me off getting the next book in the series.

The narration was spot on and both the male and female voices were believable.
