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.
Set in 1940 during the London blitz, this novel combines police procedural, serial killers, and spies. Hyde uses real life characters like Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt, and Joseph Kennedy. This may be distracting.
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.
This book didn't do it for me. I didn't feel the suspence/thriller eliment nor felt any affection for the characters.
