Stratford Murder, The: The intriguing wartime murder mystery
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Allison & Busby
During an air raid, the body of a young woman is found, strangled. DI Jago suspects that she had a secret and was mixed up in an underworld of criminal activity.
First published as Firing Line. October, 1940. Bombs are falling on Stratford when air-raid warden Sylvia Parks sees a house with a shining light, in clear breach of the city’s strict blackout rules. With no answer at the door she manages to break in, only to discover the body of a young woman, strangled to death with a stocking. For Detective Inspector John Jago, the scene brings back memories of the gruesome Soho Strangler, who murdered four women a few years ago but has never been caught – could there be a connection?
