Third in Airth's books, this setting is WW II London and once again we meet former Detective Inspector John Madden.
The victim is an employee of Madden, one of my very favorite British detectives. He sees situations differently than others and uses his thought process to help him delve into the details of the case.
A very gripping thriller with tensions mounting to the very end. Compelling writing and an outstanding British mystery.
If you enjoy British mysteries, put this on your list.
