New 1940s crime series, featuring Inspector Betty Church - one of the UK's first female police officers. Pitch-perfect historical crime. Brilliant new series from the author of The Mangle Street Murders , perfect for readers of Agatha Christie, Jasper Fforde and M.C. Beaton.

September 1939. As Britain readies for war, Inspector Betty Church must battle a ruthless killer... Inspector Betty Church - one of the few female officers on the force - has arrived from London to fill a vacancy at Sackwater police station. But Betty isn't new here . This is the place she grew up. The place she thought she'd left for good. After a slow start, Betty's called to the train station to investigate a stolen bench. But though there's no bench, there is a body . A smartly dressed man, murdered in broad daylight, with two distinctive puncture wounds in his throat . While the locals gossip about the Suffolk Vampire , Betty Church steels herself to hunt a dangerous killer.

Is this a rival for M.C. Beaton, my favourite of all time? We shall see' Frost Magazine.
