A nice quick read again.
Danny McRae is a private investigator working in the remains of London in the period immediately after WWII. A client engages him after she suspects she has killed a man. The ensuing journey takes him back into his time during the war and his difficult memories. It would seem that there are those who would prefer McRae to remain out of the way and not draw attention to the problems which led to his capture and internment by the Gestapo. The two stories are drawn together in the figure of his superior officer in the SOE. There is some half decent descriptive writing and the post war period is quite well evoked by this. The characters are a bit two dimensional but the plot merely passable – good for TV but not award winning so…. as a thriller, it passes the time but does not shine out in any great way. I think I need to get back to some better writing.
