London, July 1946. A woman's body is found in a disused bomb site off the Holloway Road. She is identified as Lillian Frobisher, "a respectable wife and mother" who lived with her family nearby. The police assume that Lillian must have been the victim of a sexual assault; but when the autopsy finds no evidence of rape, they turn their attention to her private life - How did she come to be in the bomb site, a well-known lovers' haunt? Why was her husband seemingly unaware that she'd failed to come home on the night she was killed? In this deeply evocative crime drama, Sian Busby strips away the veneer of stoicism and respectability in post-war Britain to reveal a society riven with disillusionment and loss.

“pretty useless”

I found it rather dull. It was not very well written and the plot was clunky. Whoever said this was a decent read must have been disillusioned. I am very sad the the author died well before her time and her husband... More
