October 1987: As a hurricane sweeps through Britain, a man's body slowly rots, locked inside an old water tower in west London. He carries no identification and fits no missing person's description. His corpse is never claimed.
October 2013: The month of the great storm of St Jude. A man dies beneath a late-night Piccadilly line train. His brother insists he was murdered, but Jack, a train driver, is sure it was suicide.

It may seem confusing in the first few chapters but bear with it as all will become clear! Loved the characters, quirky Jack and down to earth Stella and the plot was clever and well thought out leaving the reader guessing to the end. This is the first book I have read by Lesley Thomson and I'm looking forward to more. Anna Bentinck's narration is excellent as always!
Yes, in a year or so. Loved the original plot and characters.
Unlike any other crime book. Mixing traditional themes and modern relationships.
Every scene, not a word has been wasted.
I have enjoyed this series of books immensely and I have just purchased book four. Each book is a good standalone read with a mystery that is just out of your reach so you can't put it down. For me, the world stops when I'm reading about Stella and Jack.
Despite fantastic performance, didn't enjoy that much. It's my taste though, don't like tragedy-crime mixture.
A lot less detail in the children's story
Written a lot less about the children
I am only half-way through the book and already am finding Simon's story extremely tedious. Hope the reason for such a lot of detail about the children's gang will become clear at the end.
