Murder at Aldwych Station
E-book, Hardback, Paperback
|Rights||World English Language|
December 1940. With the Luftwaffe pounding London nightly the population
seeks refuge in London’s underground stations. One of them is Aldwych, which
has been taken out of service to shelter the British Museum’s Elgin marbles,
along with more of the museum’s treasures, and hundreds of citizens crowding
in. The body of a young man is found in the tunnel just outside the station.
Wearing a tuxedo, but barefoot, he has been poisoned.
Soon other bodies appear, some shot, one battered to death, and DCI Saxe-
Coburg’s jazz pianist wife, Rosa, becomes a target.
