Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder

"[T]his period piece illuminates what it was like to try to investigate crimes during blackouts, when cops literally had to feel their way along their beats." --Booklist

'For a scream in the early hours of the morning in Soho, even from a female throat, to stop dead in his tracks a hard-boiled constable, it had to be something entirely out of the ordinary.'

In Soho during the blackouts of the Second World War, a piercing scream rends the air and a bloodied knife is found. Detective Inspector McCarthy is soon on the scene. He must move through the dark, seedy Soho underworld--peopled by Italian gangsters, cross-dressing German spies, and glamorous Austrian aristocrats--as he attempts to unravel the connection between the mysterious Madame Rohner and the theft of secret anti-aircraft defence plans.

This evocative and suspenseful London novel from the golden age of British detective fiction is now republished for the first time since the 1950s, with an introduction by award-winning crime novelist Martin Edwards.

Review:

..".the action moves along at a cracking pace and there are some delightful set pieces which remind us of a more innocent age." -"The Daily Mail"

"Brandon s novel, first published in 1940, presents Scotland Yard s Insp. Patrick Aloysius McCarthy as a hero for his time: WWII-era London. Under the blackout, it can be hard to see your hand in front of your face. But as long as Soho native McCarthy is on the job, even the most heinous of criminals, including spies and murderers, will be brought to justice." -"Publishers Weekly""
