June 14, 2022

September, 1940.  With London having endured the Blitz for nearly a month, people are calling for vengeance, but once again the night heralds more destruction.  In Custom House, anxious residents dutifully head to the nearest public air-raid shelter as the warning siren wails.

When dawn brings the all-clear, people disperse, but one man remains – he is dead, stabbed through the heart.  Detective Inspector John Jago discovers that the victim was a pacifist.  But why, then, was he carrying a loaded revolver in his pocket?
