To celebrate the release of A Lily of the Field in paperback, Grove Press are reissuing the Frederick Troy series, starting with the original classic - Black Out.
The Blitz, London 1944.
As the Luftwaffe make their last desperate assault on the city, Londoners take to the shelters once again and eagerly await the signal for D-Day. In the East End children lead police to a charred, dismembered corpse buried in a bombsite. The victim is German and it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary murder.
For Russian emigré Detective-Sergeant Troy it is the start of a manhunt which will lead him into a world of military intelligence and corruption in high places; a manhunt in which Troy is both the hunter and the hunted.

Review:

Wonderfully captures the atmosphere of wartime London... original and entertaining., Robert Harris

This fine novel repeatedly brings to mind le Carré - for its elegance and style, its intricate suspenseful plot, [and] its intimate knowledge of a seemingly shattered time and place... A delightful, intelligent, involving book., Scott Turow

From the Author:

John Lawton worked for Channel 4 for many years, and, among many others, produced Harold Pinter's 'O Superman', the least-watched most-argued-over programme of the 90s. He has written seven novels in his Troy series, two Joe Wilderness novels, the standalone Sweet Sunday, a couple of short stories and the occasional essay. He writes very slowly and almost entirely on the hoof in the USA or Italy, but professes to be a resident of a tiny village in the Derbyshire Peak District. He admires the work of Barbara Gowdy, TC Boyle, Oliver Bleeck, Franz Schubert and Clara Schumann - and is passionate about the playing of Maria Joao Pires. He has no known hobbies, belongs to no organisations and hates being photographed.
