Summary

Soho during the blackouts of the Second World War. When a piercing scream rends the air and a bloodied knife is found, Detective Inspector MacCarthy is soon on the scene.
He must move through the dark, seedy Soho underworld - peopled by Italian gangsters, cross-dressing German spies and glamorous Austrian aristocrats - as he attempts to unravel the connection between the mysterious Madame Rohner and the theft of secret antiaircraft defence plans.

Moderately shallow characters

A well narrated piece that is gripping if a little shallow in both character and storyline

Excellent story but not a whodunnit

I really enjoyed this book, even though it was more of a thriller than a golden age mystery. Gordon Griffin is, as always, excellent. Recommended.
