Summary

November 1940. Darkness descends, and another anxious night begins for those tasked with guarding the industrial heartland of London from enemy attack. As a policeman patrols the Royal Albert Dock, something catches his eye - a man is sprawled awkwardly across a nearby barge, a dagger lodged in his back. Detective Inspector John Jago of West Ham CID discovers the victim was a dock worker by day and a Home Guard volunteer by night - and there are things even his wife doesn't know about his past. As the investigation unfolds, Jago uncovers a widening circle of secrets ranging across family tensions, the last war and a far-flung corner of the British Empire.

Excellent

Another great story in this series, with period details and social mores which aid the plot and add to interest without being obtrusive. Fantastic narrator with a very believable set of 'voices'.

Love it.

Simon Mattocks brings these characters to life, I love his narration, I could be in the war time streets watching the story unfold. The author has certainly captured the essence of the time, in the Eastend. I hope there will be more stories in the future x

This series is awesome

Love the characters, enjoy the story, and like solving the mystery as well. As a child of World War II, and a war orphan as my father was a casualty, I can relate to the times described in the story. I am looking forward to the next in the series.
