This is set in London during the German raids of Word War II.
During each raid, a serial killer strikes. This is a fascinating story at a terrifying time in history.
It has it all, suspense, intrigue, mystery. Very enjoyable.

Christopher Hyde's thriller set in the Blitz during World War II as a hunt for a Jack The Ripper style killer is underway. Hyde knows how to construct thrillers. this is one of his better ones.
