October 1987: As a hurricane sweeps through Britain, a man's body slowly rots, locked inside an old water tower in west London. He carries no identification and fits no missing person's description. His corpse is never claimed.
October 2013: The month of the great storm of St Jude. A man dies beneath a late-night Piccadilly line train. His brother insists he was murdered, but Jack, a train driver, is sure it was suicide.

Great book, excellent narration

It may seem confusing in the first few chapters but bear with it as all will become clear! Loved the characters, quirky Jack and down to earth Stella and the plot was clever and well thought out leaving the reader guessing to the end. This is the first book I have read by Lesley Thomson and I'm looking forward to more. Anna Bentinck's narration is excellent as always!
