The Room of the Dead (A Betty Church Mystery #2)

Author(s): M. R. C. Kasasian


A cold-blooded killer stalks a sleepy Suffolk town in this pitch-perfect WWII crime mystery.

December 1939. Sackwater Police Station feels a million miles from the war effort. Elderly Mr Orchard keeps wandering off in his pyjamas, little Sylvia Satin is having a birthday party, and a bookmark has been reported stolen. Inspector Betty Church - one of the few female officers on the force - is longing for something to get her teeth into...

When a bomb is dropped on Sackwater, it seems the war has finally reached them. But Betty can't stop Adolf, however hard she tries. So when a dead man is found on the beach, she concentrates on hunting an enemy much closer to home.
