Armistice Day, 1940.  The nation remembers the Great War while a new and harrowing conflict rumbles on.  The Blitz Detective, John Jago, must set aside his own painful memories to investigate a suspicious death in Pimlico, south-west London.  The body of a young man has been discovered in an Anderson shelter, with two white poppies in his pocket.

As the investigation progresses, Jago and his assistant, DC Cradock, find themselves knee-deep in the area’s shady underworld and connections with Mosley’s fascist party.  It will take all their skills to uncover the truth behind the young man’s brutal death.
