One freezing cold evening in late 1944, a young Polish girl, Rosa Nowak, is suddenly and brutally killed. No one can find any reason why someone would want to murder an innocent refugee. For the former police inspector John Madden, the crime hits close to home. Rosa worked on his farm. His old colleagues are still at the Yard but struggle to make sense of the few clues. Their only lead points toward Europe- will they find the killer before he strikes again?

Story maintains suspense throughout and shows how the police move carefully and methodically to find a psychopathic killer. The story succeeds (to me) in convincingly depicting wartime London with a minimum of detail. John Madden does not figure so prominently in this story but his work does the major unraveling of the mystery... great story.

Once again John Madden is involved in a murder case although he has been retired and living in the country for 20 years. This time the victim was someone who was living under his roof and he feels personally responsible in solving the case. While seeking the truth in wartime London, he finds the usual red herrings and people from his past that will eventually crack this case. Rennie Airth has created an intriguing story that brings back old characters and lets the reader catch up on the Madden family as well. Well worth reading!
