Today km on the tour for Death In Blitz City by David Young, thank you to Tracy at Compulsive Readers for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.

Pages: 372

Synopsis: 1942, Hull, East Yorkshire – It is the most heavily-bombed city outside of London – but for the sake of national morale the Hull Blitz is kept top secret. Only the politicians in Whitehall and Hull’s citizens themselves know of the true chaos.
Newly-posted Inspector Ambrose Swift cannot believe the devastation he finds. But for Swift and his two deputies – part-time bare-knuckle boxer Jim ‘Little’ Weighton and Dales farmer’s daughter Kathleen Carver – it’s murder, not the war, that’s at the forefront of their minds.
When a series of sadistic killings is wrongly blamed on locally-stationed black American GIs, Swift, a one-armed former WW1 cavalryman who tours the rubble-strewn city on a white horse, soon discovers these are no ordinary murders. The fetid stench of racism, corruption and perversion go to the very top. And for Swift, Weighton and Carver, finding the real killers means putting their own lives at risk – because powerful forces in the US and Britain cannot let the war effort be undermined. Not even by the truth.

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧

My Thoughts: A well put together historical police procedural story.

We’re following Ambrose Swift and Jim Weighton as they’re thrown in to a case that on the surface looks simple, a dead body outside a shelter that was recently bombed by the Nazis, but on closer inspection it doesn’t look like she was killed in the blast at all.. her heart had been ripped out & it looks professional…

As they follow the leads they soon find that they need a female touch for the possible witnesses, enter Karen Carver, a woman who can really hold her own in any situation.

Bodies keep appearing and the US Military are willing to let an innocent man take the rap to keep the peace!

This is an adrenaline filled fast paced story that will really keep you on your toes. I loved all of the main characters individually but thought they worked incredibly as a team!

Here’s hoping this is the start of a new series for me to get lost in! I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to any of them and felt they had more to give.

Lots of secrecy and lots of mysteries to uncover, this one had me hooked from start to finish
