I received an e ARC of this novel through NetGalley and Lion Hudson Plc Lion Fiction Thank youThis is the third book in the Blitz Detective series but the first novel I ve read either in that series or by Mike Hollow The story takes place in the Essex County Borough of West Ham in 1940 This area of London was bombed so heavily during the Blitz because it was located near the shipyards and the German strategy was to disrupt the building of British ships to make the island even isolated and incapable of fighting the German warships In previous novels I ve read about this horrible time in British history the people who took shelter from the bombs did so in the tunnels of the London Underground In this story the people shelter in concrete bunkers constructed above ground actually in the roadway The author shows what a nightmare these above ground bunkers must have been with no ventilation systems and nothing to do but sit in the dark on a concrete bench or on newspapers on the floor until the all clear sirens sounded It s no wonder so many people made the deadly decision to remain in their homes or to go into their own Anderson shelters in their back gardenWhen the all clear is sounded after a night of heavy bombing the body of a man is found in one of the above ground shelters Police are called and Detective Inspector John Jago and Detective Constable Peter Craddock follow the clues to discover the identity of the victim and the motive for the killing Their investigation leads them to the pacifist movement the state of the education system for the children remaining in the city and the temptations for corruption in the local governing bodyI learned many new facts concerning this point in the history of World War II and for that I thank the author I could not seem to become completely engaged with the main characters but I might be willing to read another book in this series in the future

SUMMARY ô Enemy Action (The Blitz Detective #3) Ins He’s Paul Ramsey a young teacher and he’s dead – stabbed through the heartDI Jago uickly establishes that the victim was a pacifist desperate to avoid military service Why then was he carrying a loaded revolver in his pocket Did he have enemies Was he intent on harming someone – or. England 1940 The Blitz is on and getting uglier every night Despite the war day to day life must go on So it is that on a Sunday morning his only day off Detective Inspector John Jago is called in to investigate a suspicious death in an air raid shelter A man has been murdered He is uickly identified as a local teacher who was an avowed pacifist and conscientious objector Is that why he was murdered And why on earth would a pacifist have a gun in his pocket The resulting murder investigation reveals that no one really seemed to know the murder victim very well at all and many of the suspects have undisclosed connections to one another Add to that whispers of a possible pay off scam involving sub standard air raid shelters crooked politicians a possible budding romance for the Detective Inspector and of course the war you ve got a pretty decent English mysteryThis is the third book in the Blitz Detective series the first one in the series that I ve read It works well as a stand alone but there are many references to things that have happened before that lets you know you probably should ve started with book one as with most series I suppose The author does a great job of setting the tone of war time England I thought it got a little sidetracked with the personal demons of several of those who had survived extreme violence and death in the previous war WWI just because in my opinion it detracted from the ongoing storyline rather than adding an extra layer to it which I believe is what the author intended Still it s a pretty good book that kept my attention throughoutEnemy Action is smart and well written While I can t think of any similar books offhand it reminded me of the British TV show Foyle s War I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys English mystery with a slight edge to it or historical mysteries Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this book
