A brilliant evocation of the period and a truly unnerving, menacing and original novel
The chilling new World War Two crime mystery by the award-winning author Barbara Nadel; fourth in the highly popular Francis Hancock series.
East London, 1940: Francis Hancock finds the brutally eviscerated body of a woman in a derelict house. Francis' sister, Nancy, knew the victim. Then, shockingly, two more murders follow. Rumours start to spread through the East End about another Jack the Ripper. When a fourth woman is murdered, Nancy admits that she knew all of the victims, and Francis sets out to find the killer, discovering a trail of murderous resentment that goes back decades...
