This was a page-turner. It kept me reading later into the night than it should have . . . I enjoyed the investigation part – who wanted Kennedy dead? There seemed to be an overwhelming list. I also enjoyed reading the historical aspects of the book.

The phony war has dragged out past Christmas into a dark and dreary New Year, 1940.
In the blackout, someone murdered BBC engineer Frank Kennedy, making him more popular dead than alive. A blackmailer and bully, he sold out his friends, assaulted his Broadcasting House colleagues, and sabotaged his employer.
Kennedy was also a government informant against the IRA. Despite arrests of members, the IRA is still planning more attacks against British civilians. Attacks Frank Kennedy might have been involved in.
Britain’s counterintelligence spymaster orders newspaper reporter Olivia Redmond to find Kennedy’s killer and learn which of the many motives led to his murder. Olivia quickly learns how vicious Frank Kennedy was and halfway hopes his killer escapes hanging.
Until his killer strikes again…
A clean read. No blatant sex, violence, or bad language.
