Publisher's Summary

September 1940. As the Blitz takes its nightly toll on London and Hitler prepares his invasion fleet just across the Channel in occupied France, Britain is full of talk about enemy agents. Suspicion is at an all-time high, and no one is sure who can be trusted. 

In Canning Town, rescue workers are unsettled when they return to a damaged street and discover a body that shouldn’t be there. When closer examination of the corpse reveals death by strangling, Detective Inspector John Jago is called upon to investigate. But few seem to really care about the woman’s death - not even her family. As Jago digs deeper he starts to uncover a trail of deception, betrayal, and romantic entanglements....

Perfect Reader for this series!

I have always loved stories (fiction and nonfiction) set during WWII. FOYLE'S WAR is a favorite BBC series. Now I can add DI Jago to that group as well. The stories are well written, slow to build, detailed in the minutiae of daily life in London during the Blitz, the characters are likable and believable, and most of all Simon Mattacks is there perfect reader for this series. His voice somehow fits the period and the characters and brings them to life vividly. The stories are gripping and never over-the-top in drama or unrealistic details. Everything about this series I love. I have listened to the first two books in the series and am about to start the third. I will go on to buy the next three in the series. I love them that much. Kudos to both the writer and the reader!
