It’s 1940, and Bill Trave is a Detective Constable in his early 30s working in West London. France has fallen and the capital is being bombed both day and night - it seems against all odds that Britain can survive the onslaught. Almost single-handedly Winston Churchill maintains the country’s morale, with the German enemy convinced that his removal would win them the War. Albert Morrison, a rich widower forced into early retirement by failing eyesight, is stabbed to death in his Chelsea flat.

An excellent storyline made even better with voice of the narrator. Really captures the atmosphere of WW2 Britain. I listened to this over the winter holidays, so the atmosphere was perfect.

Only downside, too exciting to be able to do anything else.
